Re: Is there something that is slippery on grass?

That looks like bounding, which can be done without skis, but the skis add they "you're crazy" factor.

Re: Training philosophy

I'm really not very good at philosophy, but could you guys comment on running vs mt.bike riding as training for skiing? For me, it's difficult to run easy, meaning my runs always end up being mid-level workouts. It's somewhat similar on the mt bike. I can't climb a hill without running up my heart ...

Re: Training philosophy

No, I would say I'm not following the 80/20 program. I'm lazy during the summer and almost exclusively go easy and moderate. The hard thing it to pull back the moderate to easy (follow the HR monitor). In the fall is generally when I start doing intervals (usually 7-10 min intervals). In a good year...

Re: Best late-season spots in US?

I think it's common for Bent to have skiing into June. So I think your first choice is a good one.

Re: End of our season!

No dreams. I was out for a 1:45 double with my wife on the bike. We came across a gator, and figured a photo of "gator and rollerskis" would bring a smile. Also, this photo got posted in another forum where it was very much on topic for an off topic thread. Waxed up the skate skis last nig...

Re: Marwe REPAIR needed

If all else fails, you can buy a new shaft. They used to be $40 but are probably $50 now.

Re: the heck is up w venezuela skier fail?

When going through YouTube, I found some videos that looked like qualifying races (at Lahti) to race at Lahti. So, I think you have to qualify before they allow you to screw up someone's race. :lol:

Re: Birkie Backup Plan --GBC or Pepsi Challenge

Both are quality events. Go ahead and do the Pepsi, great race, but don't blow it out on the first lap, The Bear Chase is easier if you're looking to nail a tine. Much, much smaller hills, but you could also end up in deep snow if it snows.

Re: Birkebeiner Course Info

I was best man in a wedding where the bride backed out. We (groom, bride and I) went back to the house and they were wondering what to do. I said, "Everything is paid for and all your closest friends and relatives are here. Go to the reception." They did. I think the Birkie is in a similar...

Re: Birkebeiner Course Info

The tracks make it look like they took out a big groomer. I have a photo in this thread from a couple days ago without those tracks.
