After lunch, students can race for free on an official NASTAR course from 12:30 until 3pm during the Roberts Memorial Ski Race.

We love coming to Florence to help develop new skiers in memory of our friend and family member Mike Roberts who spent his winters skiing at Keyes Peak”. Volunteers for this event honor the memory of Mike Roberts, a former Florence resident and Keyes Peak volunteer.
