Managed to get over 3800 feet of vertical today on x-country gear, in under 7 miles!
I am going to Timberline for round 2 tomorrow, where the climbing conditions will -no doubt- be better.
Today, slick blue ice on the way up - but I feel that 8000 vertical could be do-able.

Shoot me an email if interested in joining.

I hope you are enjoying the downs too after climbing! A friend of mine took a GPS with him last weekend during the powder mayhem and racked up some vert and looks pretty neat on the map too.

10.6mile covered, 7:30ish elapsed, 22.9max spd, 2.8 moving avg avg, 6238 feet of ascent.


have a good ski, should be awesome!! Still have 100% solid base *everywhere* and the lake-effect machine is crankin' as we speak. Powder on bomber base.... as good as it gets!

It's snowing hard in canaan heights now. I am getting offline, wrapping my work and going out later.
So far, only made one run (1000 vertical) this morning - up salamander - TLine.
Cold - that's about the only way I could describe it - but more snow is falling ----fast.

the gps trip map on visitcanaan looks incredible. It's pretty amazing that so few take advantage of being able to ski like that! I bet you have some sweet pics because it ended up to be a killer bluebird yesterday! (clear almost-full moon also allowed us to ski for hours without headlamps too...amazing!)

Andy, you should definitely look into to that. I've seen some of Vuc's stuff after it gets back from the printing press and it is GREAT! It look awesome in your WV Alpps ski shanty!
