250 skiers brave cold, fog at Langlauf 10K

NORDIC SKIING -- A few skis got tangled during the mass start for 250 competitors in the 34th annual Langlauf 10-kilometer cross-country ski race Sunday at Mount Spokane.

But the event went smoothly and, as usual, the field feasted on soup an treats before hanging around, listening to a fiddle-accordian band. Then they stepped up to an award ceremony that handed out medals, ribbons and thousands of dollars worth of prizes to participants regardless of how fast they put away the course.

It's the classiest nordic skiing event in the region.

The fastest skiers through the foggy conditions were Brad Bauer, 38, of Seattle, the overall winner in 27:33, and Deb Bauer, 46, of Spokane, the top female in 33:01.
