Nordic Skiing: Training Day #3 - 1,330 m. (4,364 ft)

Sat, 2 February 2019


Minimum altitude: 1,280 meters

Distance: 11.6 km

Slope Aspect: North


Third week of training with the SNC. Today we were focussed on transitioning from v1 to v2 and back again. I was trying longer poles, I've gone up from 155 to 162.5cm - quite a jump but seems better, at least on the flat. We also did a bit of telemark.


Difficult driving conditions early in the morning above 800 meters (frozen snow / slush). Pistes were soft, ok for skating but poles had a tendance to dig in.
