Sisu Skifest Fire

The Lovely Sarah and I volunteered at the Sisu Skifest again this year (I also volunteered last year and posted a photo for my 365 project). The Skifest takes place at the ABR ski trails in Ironwood, Michigan. The race actually ends in the middle of Ironwood's downtown, on streets specially covered with snow. It's quite spectacular to see skiers poling around the corner of a road, right in the middle of town! This photo shows the sides of the custom-cut metal fire pits which are used for the race. This one was right in the middle of main street!
