The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the events will bring an estimated $1 million into the Acnhorage economy each year. Conoco Phillips will pay $60,000 to be title sponsor of both events.
It costs about $150,000 to stage the championships, said Joey Caterinichio of the Nordic Ski Association of Anchorage, and the cost will be covered by entry fees and sponsor donations.
