Winter Rendezvous in Moose Pass


Wolfgang Kurtz | The Seward Phoenix LOG

Kat Moore proudly brandishes her 3rd place medal from competition in the Moose Pass Winter Rendezvous ski race while Tyson Davis and Katy Larkin look on. Moore as well as Davis and Larkin, who are two-fifths of Blackwater Railroad Company, took the stage at the Trail Lake Lodge later Saturday evening to play music.

The first annual Moose Pass Winter Rendezvous got off to a snowy start as Valentine's Day flakes fell while couples dined at the Trail Lake Lodge. Five inches or more of fresh powder made the next day's ski race first of all possible and, secondly, a pleasure. Groomers got out early so that the Lindquist children could dominate the youth's ski race. Neil, Sadie and Ruby took the three top spots and some custom made medals fabricated by Cooper Landing artist Katie Feichtinger.

Medallers in the adult ski race were Julie Robinson, Missy, Kat Moore as well as Chuck, Erik Johnson, Luke Rosier for the skate ski competition. There was a 3-hole ice golf tournament at 2 p.m. and Seavey's Ididaride dogsled tours started up on the lake around 4 p.m. By 7 p.m. a large bonfire fed by recycling Christmas trees was crackling along the lakeshore. Inside the Trail Lake Lodge, Blackwater Railroad Company and Kat Moore played individually and generally jammed while diners enjoyed steak dinners and drinkers enjoyed their beverages.

Sunday dawned for an afternoon of contests of chopping and cooking skill. Heidi Hatcher won a hockey stick, Cody Bryden a new "I Love Moose Pass" hat, and the winners of the Split Cords of Wood Raffle were Amy Fulton and Brian Gutzwieller. Somebody won the K2 skis but they still haven't claimed them. The Best Chili in Moose Pass title this year went to Mandy Mico for her Wild Mountain Goat Green Chili.
