I just finished up (well ok, it’s been a few days) my second glacier training camp of the summer.  It was another great week of volume training with a few interval sessions thrown in.  The pisten bully was working great this time around and the skiing was pretty sweet, minus the ash.  Cleaning off gritty klister is a pretty interesting experience!

Here are some photos:

The trip up was sweet, just a little too short.


A view of the trail. The ash was mostly bladed off the course with the pisten bully.

On Friday evening I left the camp a little early to get back to town for my good friend Tara Hamilton’s wedding.  It was hard to leave the glacier with the chance to ski a few more days, but it was really great to be there to celebrate with Tara on her big day.  (Tara and I were roommates at the three world juniors we both attended).  Tara and Wes had a sweet Alaskan wedding at an old historic mine area.  Here are some pictures:



I have one more glacier camp on tap this summer, a few weeks from now in August.  Until then, it’s back to work with plenty of dryland training.  I’ve got one more big week to finish off and then I can enjoy a recovery week to let my body absorb the last eight weeks.  Wahoo!
