Moose Pass celebrates winter


Moose Pass is the place to be this weekend for winter fun.

The quiet little community just up the highway from Seward opens up for the annual Moose Pass Winter Rendezvous featuring food, races, games and music.

Friday night Trail Lake Lodge is serving a four-course dinner with live music.

On Saturday activities begin at 11 a.m. at Trail Lake Lodge and Moose Pass Community Hall. There will be ice golf, ice bowling, ice skating, hockey, snow art, a bake sale and vendors.

The ski race registration begins at 11:30 a.m. at Trail Lake Lodge pavilion. The race starts at 12:30 p.m. on Upper Trail Lake Drive. Race categories are 5-kilometer skate-ski race, 3-kilometer classic ski race and a 1-kilometer children’s race. There is no fee. Prizes and medals will be awarded.

A chili and home brew cook off begins at 5 p.m. in the pavilion. Entries are accepted until 4:45 p.m. Contestants must be present to serve their food or brew.

The Moose Pass Snow Ball begins at 7 p.m. at the lodge with Blackwater Railroad Company to rock the house. It’s an Alaska style formal affair so anything goes.

The lake will be decorated with hundreds of ice luminaries, so folks can ski, walk or snowshoe on the illuminated lake.

The rondy winds down Sunday with a bloody Mary brunch at Trail Lake Lodge beginning at 10 a.m.
