Instead of hosting a World Cup this week, Van Hoe and its staff put on a pretty good NorAm and what I am most psyched about - another paintball biathlon race for local young skiers. Its something new in the Adirondacks this winter and thanks to some excited participants, supportive parents and devoted individuals these races seem to go off with out a hitch. Here's a couple snap shots from the event:
I'm up in Presque Isle, Maine now for the first week of US World Cups but just came off a good week of training at home. Out of all the places I get to ski around the world Mt. Van Hoevenberg remains to be my favorite. Nowhere has yet to compare to the 15km Porter loop, the heights of High Notch or the terrain of Ladies 5km. If you're in the area, check them out, conditions are great and the local Lake Placid Loppet is this weekend!
