The Alaska Ski for Women is an annual event, held on Super Bowl Sunday, at Kincaid Park in west Anchorage. The 2011 ski was held on 6 Feb 2011 on a bitterly cold day.
The Ski for Women is a big fundraising event with the proceeds going to agencies that specialize in dealing with abuse and violence against women and children.
The ski is part fun and part competition with a lot of cool costumes; there was an incredible turnout considering how cold and windy it was. I was there for a little over two hours and could barely feel my toes and fingers despite being prepared for the cold - but it was definitely worth it.
Good fun for good causes - Alaskan women do rock!
