There is not a lot of snow in Anchorage but about a 15 minute drive up the hillside there is enough to do some quality rock skiing.Here is a couple picture from last week, right after we got the snow.Photo Credit: Davis DunlapPhoto Credit: Davis Dunlap...

The last fifteen days I've been training and living in Park City, Utah with the U.S. Ski Team. It has probably been the best camp I've had this year. The weather and training venue has been a really nice change, not that I don't love the Anchorage hurr...

A little change in weather here in Anchorage. We got a little cold front that moved in, so it went from lots of rain to some fresh snow and clear blue skies. Today I went for a really nice rollerski and tried to soak up some of that vitamin D I've been...

It's been a super busy last couple weeks. My plan with school this year is to take a larger load now in the fall semester, so that I can take an easier load this winter when I will be traveling a lot. That means if I'm not working out there is a pretty...

Hi Readers,It has been a little while but here is an update from the last couple months. This summer I have spent most of my time training with the Alaska Pacific University mens team in Anchorage, Alaska. Check us out -->Our team is fortunate ...

My last post was about the last time I was in the full on ski scene. I took a month off after the Super Tour Finals in Vermont, I had a great time in Alaska doing things I rarely get to do. For me it is necessary to once a year push the good old reset ...

Hi Everyone, sorry this has taken a couple days to get an update to you all. I'm back in Alaska, trying to get caught back up on my school work. I haven't been to a race in Vermont since I was younger racing the Bill Koch Festival. The east coast ...

Last week I spent in Rogla, Slovenia. This trip to Europe I have gotten to experience a lot of new countries and this was one of them. We stayed in a small resort town on the top of a mountain, a little different then most ski resorts in the U.S. where...

Thats right, I just spent a week in Switzerland. In one of the most beautiful towns I've been in, Fuetersoy. It was a really fun time, we had four days before our races and our goal was to ski a lot of kilometers to keep up our training. This is a grea...

The Under 23 World Championships has come to an end. Yesterday I competed in the 15km classic and Tuesday I did the skate sprint. I was pretty happy with my distance race yesterday, I think I have made a big jump in my distance racing this year. I'm pr...

I made a video yesterday from my first day in Turkey. So sweet here!!! Once and a life time experience. Tried to put a few clips together to give you feeling of atmosphere. I will write an update soon.

It has been a while since my last post, which I apologize to those people checking my blog regularly. I will try to do a better job the rest of the season.After Christmas I headed to Maine for Nationals. I was really excited for the obvious reasons but...

Merry Christmas everyone! It's dumping snow here in the Methow.... Pretty sweet! Just got back from a ski with the family. Doesn't get much better then this.Last week Sadie and I hosted a camp for the local kids. It was very successful, nearly 50 kids ...

I raced today at Sovereign Lakes, first Noram for a couple of years. My top result in the past was 32nd place. Today I qualified 7th and was able to ski up into 3rd, for my first Noram podium. Pretty excited!!! Check out this link for a full race repor...

Hello readers, I'm now in Silver Star, Canada and it is AMAZING here. The trails are always corduroy and the sun is always shinning. This is the best skiing in North America, well besides the Methow of course. We arrived monday night, so this was our f...

Well, here is little update from the last couple weeks. Sorry I haven't been great about updateing my blog. But, with the combination of finishing up classes at Alaska Pacific University online and having limited internet access it has been a little ha...

So little change of plan. It's way to cold to race in Fairbanks. We will now be racing tomorrow in Anchorage as an unofficial race between the three Alaska college teams. Alaska Pacific University, University of Alaska Anchorage,  and University o...

Tomorrow morning we leave for Fairbanks for my first race series of the year. We race a 3.5 km classic course Friday night, then we have a 10km classic on Saturday, and a 7.5km skate on Sunday. Here is the weather forecast.It does look a bit on the chi...
