The mountain town of Talkeetna holds the allure of picturesque Denali views, cozy cabins and some of the best food in the state at spots like Talkeetna Roadhouse and Mountain High Pizza Pie. This makes Talkeetna an ideal weekend getaway.
This Saturday, skiers will unite to mark the end of winter with the 17th Annual Oosik Classic Ski Race/Tour. The 50k cross-country race has a new course every year and is open to skiers of all levels. At the end of the race, celebrate Talkeetna-style with beer from Denali Brewing Company and live music from local bands.
