Chris Broda, who leads the LOL (Ladies of Leisure) ski training group, like her husband, Byron, jumped into the virtual Sonot Kkaazoot before the traditional route was deemed unsafe. Not only that, she was joined by others. The half dozen skiers plus Chris, who except for this one uphill, were safely 6 feet apart.
Chris writes: This was taken the day before the river was declared unsafe. A group of us are heading off the river to ski the loop before heading back. We put in at Pro Music so we are just short of 20K.
Virtual Sonot organizers ruled that these seven skiers had finished the virtual traditional 20 km Sonot Kkaazoot noting that in 1993 and 1994, the Sonot Kkaazoot started at the Steese Highway Bridge instead the Cushman Street one. So these skiers add 140 km to our virtual Sonot Kkaazoot running total.
Congratulations to Johnna Underwood, Jon Underwood, Callie Underwood, David Underwood, Karin Gillis, Nancy Hanneman, and Chris Broda.
