Temperatures have risen to 35.4 deg F after a morning low of 32.5 deg in the Birch Hill stadium. With the early morning changes, right now we have 280 skiers set to participate in 32nd annual Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot. The field currently is split 50:50 between the two courses with 140 racers for each event. Age of skiers range from 7 to 83 years old. It will definitely be a celebration of sliding into springtime today.
