Fall training makes ski transitions easy

With the spectacular autumn days that we’ve been having, getting motivated to train has been fairly easy. Add a few friends, and 4 ascents of the Fort Wainwright ski hill is easily done. Starting from Birch Hill, this makes for 757 m of elevation gained (and equal amount lost), 9.37 km total distance, with 4.48 km uphill.

Although it was 28 deg at Fort Wainwright when we started, but the guys in shorts were actually best dressed for the workout. Enjoy the sunshine and golden coins floating from the skies while we can.
