For the past week I have been training in tropical Duluth MN. Despite the lack of snow, I have been taking advantage of the warm temps and brilliant sunshine to do some beautiful spring skiing and work on my technique. Yesterday we skied for almost 3 hours on the historic Birkie trail under blue skies and temperatures in the plus. I rarely get to klister ski up in the Yukon, and it really can be some of the nicest striding. Getting rejuvenated and stoked to throw on the bib this this coming weekend!
