Training Camp!

Immediately upon my return from UAA's alpine training camp in Colorado, the nordic team headed 40 miles north of Anchorage to Palmer for their annual Thanksgiving 5-day training camp. I had to miss most of it, but did manage to get myself to the final workout of the camp, a three-hour classic ski at Sheep Mountain.

UAA training camp team headquarters in Palmer.  It was NOT looking very wintry last week!

We took a quick lap on Sheep Mountain's groomed trails....

...but it quickly became apparent that the local dog mushing trails offered better snow conditions. Here's Sadie and Sara.

Mario.  A little no-pole skiing action.
