If you own a fatbike, roll up to fossil and take Brewers down!!! 1st time in 4 years it's been rideable in February!! So if you didn't get any on Wednesday, get some this weekend!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Sinks is awesome right now. This layer is just right - cold enough and not a full-on dump. Falls is slippery, but warming hut loops and Brewers are great. Let's get more tires on it! ... See MoreSee Less
Today. I did skate skiing at Beaver Creek. What a difference from yesterday! Yesterday, it was 6 degrees with a cutting East Wind. Today, it was 35 and the wind was from the West and basically a non factor!
My Vivoactive HR ran out of juice (and so did I) so it reported I was Indoor Rowing. But it did record the course. I did Limestone and Upper Tree Loop.
This was the first day I used skate skis at BC. A little explanation for those who don’t ski: there are two distinct forms of cross country skiing, Diagonal Stride and Skate Skiing. Skate skiing for me is faster (and today was fast!) but requires more energy. Yesterday, I had a slow and cold day with Diagonal Stride (average speed 2.8 MPH.) Today, I was at 4.5 MPH on skate skis.
Prior to today, I used skate skis at the Golf Course which is essentially flat at 5400 feet. BC is not that! The route I took today had a elevation gain of 350 feet at a starting elevation of 7900 feet. So I was sucking a lot of wind! But it was a very good day and the snow was near perfect thanks to Web, the groomer, who skied at a high rate of speed past me (I think he is my age but I doubt I could ever stay with him! He use to be the XC Coach at Lander High School.) Fortunately he was going the opposite direction, so I wasn’t embarrassed! ... See MoreSee Less
Word on the street is conditions are pretty slick up Sinks Canyon, If you are looking to get out on a Fat Bike this weekend I would suggest Deception Creek on Togwatee Pass or the loop road from South Pass. If you are going for it up Sinks be careful and wear knee pads. ... See MoreSee Less
