Today was a training day in between yesterday's Sprint and tomorrow's Pursuit, and a good day to take advantage of freezing temps overnight and clear blue skies this morning. A huge crew ventured up to the open, frozen fields on top of the Perley Brook Roads to ski on the perfect spring snow crust. The effortless and open range skiing was a nice change after racing in slushy conditions in yesterday's sprint.
