A group of about 40 skiers are somewhere in the Brooks Range right now, competing in an event that’s grueling, even by Alaska standards.
Listen now The annual Alaska Mountain Wilderness Ski Classic kicked off on Sunday, April 1.
And Cramer did, in fact, arrive on horseback in 1970.
Cramer has been organizing the classic since the late 1980s.
Luc Mehl and Sarah Histand expect to spend five nights together in the wilderness before finishing in the 31st annual Alaska Mountain Wilderness Ski Classic in Wiseman.
The course ranges from 100 to 200 miles and switches between the Brooks Range, the Wrangell-St. The routes are dreamed up by a man named Dave Cramer. “He drove horses to Alaska and he trapped and he had hand to hand combat with a wolf,” Mehl says.“I feel like that shaped my whole perspective on what we, as individuals, are all capable of.” And now it’s a challenge Histand and Luc Mehl will go through together.The two are dating and also partnering up for the ski classic.It’s been ten years since Mehl’s first classic, and he says the end of the event — that’s always the best part.“There’s the elation of finishing and being done, because what you just did is really hard,” Mehl says, laughing to himself. “You finish that in this warm, cozy little bubble with baked lasagna and people sharing this experience– it ends up being pretty powerful,” Mehl explains.
