Preston’s Candlelight Ski & Chili Cook-off

Fri, Jan 10th, 2014
Posted in Preston The Great Outdoors

Let it snow - just in time for Preston’s annual Candlelight Ski & Chili Cook-Off event! Bundle up and come on down to the Trailhead Inn office on Saturday evening, January 18 to ski on the trail and to test-taste some wonderful chili contest entries.

The Chili Cook-Off Contest will run from 5-7 p.m. Those who plan to enter the contest should bring an eight 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 ½ hour prior to the event to set up. The Trailhead Inn will provide spoons & bowls for the test-tasting. Each guest in attendance gets to cast one vote for their favorite entry. Hot chocolate, coffee, & 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 & back” course on the Harmony-Preston Valley Trail from 5:30-7:30 p.m. 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.
