BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Two local women are working to keep the Whatcom County Women Division of the Ski to Sea race alive by recruiting new teams.

The division was in danger of being eliminated because of low registration numbers.

Beth Hartsoch and Heather Nelson have been holding free clinics that show women what it’s like to be on a Ski to Sea team.

Hartsoch says she expects 12 to 15 local women’s teams to register this year.
