This year the annual meeting is at the beautiful Glacier View banquet room at the Bidarka inn.

We get to return to meeting in person for a potluck dinner, so bring out all those delicious dishes to share that we’ve been missing during our two years of zoom annual meetings. There will be a bar tender on duty to serve some tasty libations.

HOMER SKI SWAP – November at the Homer High Commons.

Barter, trade, sell, or give away your winter and ski gear. Winter clothing, winter gear, skates, snowboards, and of course skis, are all welcome. Or, join us on the Facebook group: KNSC Ski Swap year round!

(There is no charge to sell or swap but participants are asked to be responsible for displaying, pricing and removing their unsold items.  The action and best deals happen quickly so being there at the start is a good idea.  Even if you have nothing to get rid of or have nothing you need, it is still a great start of the season social event.  The Homer High School Ski Team will be available to wax skis as a fundraiser for the Ski Team.)


HOMER Nordic is intended for those skiers looking to improve their technique and establish a regular training program.  Our commitment is to building a community of athletes of all levels. No matter your ski ability, fitness, or age, the workouts are designed for every individual to improve their xc ski technique and strength. Participants must be members of KNSC. More info here or register online now!


Bring your Christmas leftovers and try out your new winter gear.  Ski anytime between 9 am and 4 pm.  Try for one of the following categories: Ski Your Age in Kilometers, Join the Century Club by Skiing 100 MINUS your age in Kilometers, Ski the most kilometers as a family, Ski 50 Kilometers. Location TBA

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS –  The Friday night closest to the full moon in January

This is a unique ski experience for all ages and abilities.  We will “Light up the Night” Friday night with candles made at our candle-making station. The Hayfield Loop will be lit with LED candles along the ski trail. Skiers are encouraged to ski by headlamp. The moon is close to full.
