Historical Sports: The Ski Start

This undated Juneau Empire file photo shows Dennis Bailey and Susan Spence at the start of either a community race or a Ski-To-Sea Relay Race, at Eaglecrest. The Ski-To-Sea involved five-person teams. Starting on Eaglecrest, a downhill skier would relay to a cross country skier, next a winter runner went half-way down Eaglecrest road, then a spring runner ran out onto Douglas Highway, and then a biker rode Douglas Highway to Outer Point. Participants numbered over 100 people.
