SNB Sponsors Great Bear Chase 25K

Published on April 3, 2018 | Posted in News & Community Involvement

Superior National Bank and Trust sponsored the 25-kilometer freestyle race during Saturday’s Great Bear Chase at Swedetown Trails in Calumet. More than 700 skiers took part in event races in both classic and freestyle skiing techniques ranging in distance from 10K to 50K; 185 racers, mainly from the upper Midwest but as far away as Virginia and Nevada, completed the 25K freestyle.

The Great Bear Chase’s popularity is due in large part to the excellent late-season snow conditions enjoyed in Upper Michigan. Skiers from Minnesota, Wisconsin, lower Michigan and across the country ascend to the Keweenaw Peninsula. The event benefits the Swedetown Trails Club, which maintains the trails all season.
