Glad you tried out striding equipment and it felt good. Did you borrow the skis from Tony?

I remember striding with you at Lapham Peak. Nice long strides with excellent balance and showy pole dynamics. You can do it all! Were you using klister?

I have always had classical skis boot and poles. I’m liking it because you don’t have to ski so hard and then you would go into o2 debt skiing out here. Which is harder than it was 10-15 years ago when after 3-4 days it was like altitude was nothing.
I’m glad I signed up for the 25k not the 50 which is two loops anyway.

I have some nice poles I’m going to make some nice skate poles into classical poles when I get home. Get the old wax off my older classical skis and get them ready for next year. With Parkside being groomed early next year this could be fun.

Salomon classical racing boots?

Too bad about the race. But who needs another race? Including the Birkie two weeks ago, you've done plenty of XC this winter as it is. Kick back and enjoy Colorado.

Or go over to Vail. And ski downhill with George and Lyn. They just got a fresh dump, and need an orienteer to lead them down the powder-filled back bowls! You could either rent powder skis, or use those classical skis to carve Tele-turns all the way down the mountain!

Monstrous. We had a great time. Daughter is swamped up near Tennessee Pass. Driveway is a narrow slot between huge banks reaching point of difficult to get snow over.
