This was Sara Renner’s comment to Devon and I as we reached our high point for the day at 2700 meters on a unique high altitude training session last week.
Devon and Sara had both just recently returned from the Tour de Ski race and we were all keen to do our long and high workout in the most energy-giving manner possible: backcountry ski touring.
My Dad, Glen and Sara’s husband Thomas Grandi joined us for what was an incredible 5-hour tour from 1900 to 2700 meters. The great company sweetened the deal of getting all the physiological benefits of such a workout and on top of that we were rewarded with phenomenal views and a refreshed connection with the mountain environment that in so many ways defines us.
