Kids of all ages flocked to Main Street in downtown Ishpeming last night for a family night of cross country skiing, snacks and Fun! Wilderness Sports loaned out ski equipment to approximately 100 kids, allowing them to experience the fun of cross country skiing. With temperatures in the high 20’s, the man-made course constructed by maintenance crew of the City of Ishpeming and lined with lit tiki torches created an enjoyable atmosphere. Upon completing the course, starting from Pearl & Main, turning left at Ol’ Ish and continuing down to the fire station then back; everyone enjoyed grilled hot dogs and hot chocolate, served by members of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.
