Max Kaufman sked his classical virtual 30 km Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot on Sunday in a time of 1:49:12. Like most skiers to date, he reports that his actual course distance was a little shy of 30 km.
“Golden sunlight filtering through the trees, with birch shadows across the trail. I finished the course at sunset with the red chalet ablaze. The snow out White Bear is still cold and fine. This is the first imaginary race I’ve done where the groomers start ripping out the tracks while you’re still on the final kilometer. All in good fun: nice job groomers!”
