Big Brothers Big Sisters Seward Program Seeks BIGS

Who taught you to play chess? Build a model airplane? Knit a sweater? Who listened to your dreams and encouraged you to pursue them? Most of us had someone who made us feel special, taught us new things, taught us to believe in ourselves. Those caring adults helped make us who we are today! But many kids in our community are missing the adult friendships they need to become successful adults. Some children have parents absent from the home, some children live in large families where they’re often over-looked, and some kids are just lonely and would like another friend. […]

Trail Update

Exit Glacier- Sunday Eve Nov. 18  As good it gets!  2 feet of groomed trail.   Skied out to the overlook Sunday evening—and back by moonlight.    Very well groomed to the park entrance, but very skateable to overlook.    Touring is perfect.  Bob   Trail River Campground Friday afternoon Nov.16 – The road is pretty good for both skate or touring – the snow is so light that even the packed area is not too wide, skating is easy.   Lakeside Loop is the best for skating – other loops are a little less packed but great for touring. Coverage […]

Trail Update

Here are some trail reports from members.  Please remember that conditions change and these updates are informational only.  Individuals need to make decisions based on current conditions. As of Sunday 11/11 at 3pm:  Exit Glacier has great snow, good for classic and do-able for skate skiing.  There are wide snowmachine tracks the first 1/2 mile or so, but after that the track is narrow and so a little more challenging for skate skiing until further traffic packs a wider surface. Saturday 11/10: Lost Lake Summer Trail (town side) is in condition for ski touring once you pass the switchbacks above […]

Exit Glacier Road Update

Seward Nordic Ski Club Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend snowfall! Here’s a trail report from one of our members. Its 3:00 pm (Monday) and I just got off Exit Glacier Road. IT WAS GREAT! (You know I don’t do groomed very much so what is great for me isn’t always great for everyone.) The road is covered – anywhere between two – 4 inches all the way to the overlook – snow looked pretty much the same after that but is probably a little heavier in the Park. . There is an icy base on most of it, which is […]

I was surprised that the Phoenix Log Lost Lake Article did not even mention the names of the runners who won race. Cedar Bourgeois WON the women’s race and I believe she might be the first Seward resident to ever win the race (anyone know?) Way to go Cedar! Give her a pat on the back if you see her. A lot of other Sewardites also did quite well. Complete results are online at www.lostlakerun.org

The Board of Directors for the Seward Chamber of Commerce, Conference and Visitors Bureau, today adopted significant changes in the rules for the 2007 Seward Silver Salmon Derby®. Beginning in 2007, Derby participants will not be limited to the waters of Resurrection Bay. The Derby helps raise money for Fish Enhancement programs in Resurrection Bay, through the sale of those Coho salmon entered into the Derby. The boundary change was prompted by the Chamber’s desire to increase Derby participation by opening the Derby up to those anglers fishing out of Seward for multiple species, often outside of Resurrection Bay.
