XCFeedsPark City Camp

I spent the last 10 days in Park City Utah for testing and an altitude camp.  After some wet weather at home, it was great to arrive in the arid west and see the sun!  The town of Park City is around 7000′ but we stayed in a condo near the top of Guardsman Pass so we were sleeping at 8500′ for extra altitude effects.

I wasn't expecting to see foliage here but the yellows leaves were really pretty

The camp started with lots of testing at USSA’s Center of Excellence.  We did VO2max tests on the rollerski treadmill, strength tests, mobility tests, blood tests, and body composition tests.  So after a couple days of feeling caged up like a lab rat, I was very excited to head outside for training.  The rest of the camp involved lots of rollerskiing, running, and bounding on the roads and trails around Park City including a 3+ hour point to point run on the Mid Mountain Trail.

Felt good to see the sun!

We did a couple of intensity sessions on the rollerski track at Soldier Hollow including classic speeds and skate threshold intervals.  It was fun skiing fast in a big group.

This camp was the first time that our entire team was together since the Bend camp in May.  Unfortunately with some injuries plaguing the team, we weren't able to train together for every session but everyone was working hard all the time.  Here are Sadie and Kikkan aqua jogging in the COE pool.

After a week and a half in Park City, we headed north to Canmore, Alberta for Frozen Thunder.  The Canmore Nordic Center saved snow from last winter and rolled it out last week for a 2km ski trail and some of the earliest skiing in North America.  We’ve spent the last couple days skiing hot laps around the manmade loop and then today it started to snow!  The ground is fully white and we are off to make some fresh tracks through the powder!
