Weekend Recap: Skiing Cut Short, Fun Extended

Recap of March 1-3 My weekend kind of started out a bit early, with my company’s annual ski trip to Winter Park. However, this year’s trip was a bit out of the norm. We loaded up the bus at Dinosaur Lots as usual, but our bus driver seemed a little odd. I didn’t pay too much attention – I was just excited as it was snowing hard in the mountains, and we were about to have a great day! Unfortunately, {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Talons Challenge

Recap of February 23-24 This was a really exciting weekend for me, as I achieved a huge ski goal for myself! And when that was done, I also got some down time as I gear up to get back on the road for work. Friday was a busy day of work (as usual), but I was able to book some calls for the afternoon during which I could drive out to the mountains. I left around 1:30pm, well before the {Read More}

Off-Mountain Ski Training Workout

This weekend, I attempted the Talons Challenge at Beaver Creek – participants must ski down every single and double-black diamond on Birds of Prey, Grouse Mountain, and Larkspur. That’s 14 runs and more than 26,000 feet of vertical, all on Beaver Creek’s toughest terrain. This is the first year I’ve even felt comfortable on a double black diamond, so I knew it was going to be a challenge! While I’ve been skiing a lot more this year (I’m already up {Read More}

This morning, I’m off to do the Talons Challenge at Beaver Creek! The Talons Challenge is an annual event where skiers have to take a run down every black diamond and double black diamond in the Talons area of Beaver Creek – 14 runs, but 26,000 vertical feet. This is the first year I’ve ever even attempted a double black diamond, but after all the skiing I’ve done this year, I’m so excited that I’ve gotten good enough to attempt {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Queen of the Slopes, Queen of the Toilets

Weekend of 2/15-2/17 This was a weekend of very little sleep. The tone was set on Thursday night, when I randomly woke up at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. Around 4:30am, I finally gave up trying, and grabbed a book to read in bed rather than wasting time tossing and turning. Finally, around 6am, I headed to Chuze Fitness for some treadmill time. After the gym and a bunch of work, I headed out to the mountains soon after {Read More}
