Schedule for GoreTex North American Ski Mountaineering Championships

First, I’m really looking forward to this race.  The sprint sounds like a lot of fun and since I’ve never done one like this before its a welcome first.  The race on Sunday is going to be challenging because I’ve got to race it at my own pace.  Some big names and fast skiers are going to be there and my goal is simply to finish.  Finally, I’m really hoping that there might be a couple of folks in the neighborhood who won’t mind cheering me on.  The sprint should actually be spectator friendly (although I anticipate that the race won’t be unless you’re well ahead of the pack and ready to ring your bell at choke points along the course).
Anyway this is where I’ll be this weekend, really looking forward to seeing you all there as well.
