ConocoPhillips Besh Cup Races 3 & 4 – Lookout Mountain, Homer_Startlist Update

Homer races are a go! The report from KNSC is that the snow cover and base is good at Lookout Mountain. While it has been raining in the region, the snow has held and the temperatures are expected to drop.

We do not have a specific road conditions report; though with temperatures dropping after several days of warm temperatures, expect the road conditions that we have become accustomed and plan your drive accordingly. Take your time.

Venue details – Concessions will be onsite – provided by the Homer High School Ski Team

Parking is limited – Please carpool as best you are able. Be as efficient as possible in your parking manner. The lot is icy but is being sanded. Ice bug boots or grippers to attach to your boots should be a staple by now in your “go bags.”

Warming area is the chalet where bib pickup & concessions are. Portapotties are on-site.
