Snekkevick Ski Event in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) - The Wausau Nordic Ski Club hosted the annual Snekkevick Ski Event at Nine Mile Forest in Wausau on Saturday.

Cross country skiers waxed up their skis and took off. People could register for different types and lengths of races. Event leaders say more than 200 people, including adults, high schoolers and children, participated in the event.

The race director, Jeanne Alexejun, says it's fun to get a variety of ages involved.

"The younger you start your skiers skiing, the better it is for them and the ski community itself," said Alexejun.

Event leaders say the cold earlier this week made it hard for skiers to practice, but Saturday's weather conditions were ideal for the event.
