2017 Race Review – The 31st annual Buckwheat Ski Classic was held on  Saturday, March 25, 2017 . This year’s theme, with a nod to Dr. Seuss, was: “Oh, the Places You’ll Ski !”   Congrats to Todd Bailey of Skagway for the best costume, Miss Buckwheat Ozzie Wagner, Des Duncan Award honourees Gary Hanson and Nola Cole, and Father Mouchet Award winners Chas Dense, Cristi Herren and Carol Ackerson. See Results page for race winners and times of all 295 skiers who registered, and check out photos on the Log Cabin Ski Society Facebook page.
