Preston’s Candlelight Ski and Chili Cook-off


Fri, Jan 11th, 2013
Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

Let it snow - just in time for Preston’s annual Candlelight Ski and Chili Cook-Off event! Bundle up and come on down to the Trailhead Inn office this Saturday evening, January 19 to ski on the trail and to test-taste some wonderful chili contest entries.

The Chili Cook-Off Contest will run from 5-7pm. Those who plan to enter the contest should bring an 8-quart crockpot, a list of recipe ingredients, and any extra items that go with the chili entry (crackers, chips, cheese, etc.). Participants also should be at the Trailhead Inn half an hour prior to the event to set up. The Trailhead Inn will provide spoons and bowls for the test-tasting. Each guest in attendance gets to cast one vote for their favorite entry. Hot chocolate, coffee, and wine also available. Contact Tracey Corson 507-273-6903 for contest information.

Candlelight Skiers can enjoy skiing in the moonlight along the lighted 1 ½ mile “out and back” course on the Harmony-Preston Valley Trail from 5:30-7:30pm. Warm up afterwards near the bonfire with a cup of hot cocoa. If snow is scarce, guests can still participate in a Candlelight Walk, and if the temperatures are too frigid, the Chili Cook-Off will still take place.

DNR Day Ski Passes will be available for purchase at the Trailhead Inn office for $6. Cross-country skis are available for rent at the Cedar Valley Resort in Whalan.
