The early snow in Idaho helped me to build a strong skiing base for the cross country ski race season. By the end of January, I have tied my maximum number of days skied for this point of time, but my total kilometers skied is a new record. I feel like I have a pretty good base going into this weekend's Boulder Mountain Tour (32km ski race with about 1000 people). I hope that I'm not over trained for it.
Unfortunately, this January is the second driest on record for Idaho. Our local ski area is starting to suffer from the lack of snow. If we don't get some soon, this great fitness base will be wasted.
