Welcome to Pelvoux! We have been having great weather the last few days, and yesterday was no exception so Andrew, Reiner, Peter, and I went out for a ski to check out the first ascent and last descent on the individual course. It's great to see some well set skin tracks to race on, which will make the racing fast. A good skin track is lower angle and has had a few people go over it to pack it down, and there are double skin tracks set in most places here. It reminds me of the time and effort that is put in for the Dogtooth Dash.
After the ski we headed down to the opening ceremonies. It was cool to see all the different countries represented amongst the 200 competitors. We ended up leaving early to prepare for the teams race the next day. Stay tuned to my twitter feed for Canadian results in the teams race. There are two mens teams comprised of Peter & Steve as one team and Reiner& Andrew as the other. On the female side we have one team, consisting of Martha and Carla. Mel and I are resting for the sprint races the following day.
