Athabaskan: Sonot (pronounced “SAW NOT”, “springtime”) Kkaazoot (“to slide your feet across the snow”)
Saturday, 13 March 2021 until Sunday, 28 March 2021
The virtual 34th annual Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot is officially in the record books. Skiers have until Wednesday, 31 March 2021 to submit reports and times to the email at the bottom of this post. If you don’t see your report posted within 24 hours, please send again. Google mail has been doing mysterious things.
Scroll down for RESULTS that will be posted in the order that they are recieved. Please enter a comment on the appropriate blogpost if you see anything amiss in my reports of the virtual Sonot Kkaazoot.
See post Sonot Kkaazoot message from Bad Bob here: https://sonotkkaazoot.org/2021/03/30/bad-bob-speaks-about-denali-state-bank-sonot-kkaazoot/
All participants are highly encouraged to make a TRAIL DONATION on behalf of the Virtual Sonot Kkaazoot, but it’s not a requirement. You can leave cash or checks in the iron ranger at Birch Hill Recreation Area or make an online donation here: https://nordicskicluboffairbanks.wildapricot.org/Donate/
Denali State Bank along with the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks will be offering free Sonot Kkaazoot reusable face masks for any skiers who wish to have one while supplies last. They are currently available in the log warming hut at Birch Hill Recreation Area.
2021 Sonot Kkaazoot posters by Mark Ross are still available from Bad Bob (see his message at the URL given above) for a $50 trails donation.
Enjoy spring skiing. I look forward to seeing you at the 35th annual Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot.
