Black Jack Ski Club held a Tour de Soup event on Saturday afternoon.

Cross country skiers were invited to come out and ski for free for the day, and could stop at each of Black Jack’s three cabins for a cup of soup.

Skiers were encouraged to make a donation in lieu of paying for trail fees.

“The trail fees are waved and as part of the club’s support of the Black Jack skier development program, they’re just asking people to make donations if they wish,” explained volunteer Tammy McLean. “There’s no obligation to make donations, but we’re very grateful that people are.”

Donations help pay for equipment, training for volunteer coaches, racing travel costs for kids who compete, and for the paid senior coach position.

All of the soup was contributed by local restaurants, and there were six soups in all, two at each cabin:

Trail Head Cabin: tomato chicken sausage soup from Gabriella’s Restaurant and mushroom barley soup from Alpine Grind

Torresan’s Cabin: tomato vegetable soup from Clancey’s Restaurant and chicken cream corn soup from Ying’s Café

Gibbard’s Cabin: vegetarian black bean soup from the Flying Steamshovel and butternut squash soup from the Garage

The day saw at least 100 people or more turn out for cross country skiing and soup.
