OUTDOORS Photos By Joseph Robertia At the recent Juneau Ski Club banquet, the Matt Brakel Trophy was awarded to Gabriella Hebert and Noah Machakos, both age 10. The award is given each year in memory of Matt Brakel, who died in an avalanche while skiing on Mt. McGinnis in 1999. The Mitey Mite coaching staff gives the award to the Mitey Mite Boy and Mitey Mite Girl who best exemplify Matt's dedication, spirit and enthusiasm on the mountain. Gabriella and Noah will also receive Eaglecrest season passes paid for by the Matt Brakel Memorial Fund.
