Gorgeous day at SMS! We got a nice 4-5" of snow last night that made for good cover on hard packed trails. Boobs was out early with the groomer and laid down some tracks for classic skiing. We had some kids up on the mountain doing some skate interv...

We had a nice morning up at the Sunbowl with everyone getting out for 45 mins to an 1:30 on skate skis. There's some nice terrain up on the mountain for us to ski without climbing straight up the alpine area and several people on the team checked out ...

Two more productive days under our belt here in Colorado. On Wednesday we did an easy skate ski in the morning and the weather was awesome - it finally warmed up into the double digits! We took Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning off. We're tra...

Another beautiful, but chilly day in Colorado! Temps were in the single digits for most of the day, but we bundled up and headed out for two workouts today. The older kids did their first hard workout of camp (though arguably every workout has been har...

The whole team is back together and we spent the morning classic skiing under beautiful sunny skies at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, CO. The younger kids drove down to the lodge, scraped their skis, and headed out, while the older kids skied down from...

We headed to South Londonderry this morning for a combi skate ski and run workout. Though rain was in the forecast, the weather held and we had nice weather for practice. We skied Winhall Hollow & Thompsonberg Roads for 45 minutes to an hour and ...

This morning we did a combi workout - classic rollerski out to the town of Stratton and a run/hike over Stratton Mountain. A few of the girls decided to ski a little longer, instead of running. Everyone enjoyed a nice easy ski after a busy Nationals ...
