"Skiers Don't Drink Pop!"

Lars Flora and some other lucky skiers traveled to remote Alaska villages to bring the story of skiing and healthy living to a bunch of excited kids.  There are so many things about this story that really resonate with me; my favorite part, though, is where the coaches were given donated Alaska Airlines miles to fly to the villages and Lars, instead, skied from village to village, pulling a 40-pound sled.  It doesn't get much cooler than that.  Nice work, Alaska skiers!

Many thanks to Jim Slyfield for alerting me to this great article in the May 5 Anchorage Daily News.
