I spent Saturday morning out on the Methow Valley's race trails, helping to prepare skis for racers at the Methow Valley Pursuit. Day 1 was a 10km individual start classic race. Conditions were hard-track klister skiing, with a track snow temperature of -4C.
Applying klister at the side of the track.
The race trails here are challenging - up and down and repeat - and good grip wax is a priority. As usual, the best skiers made it look easy. Congratulations to everyone who raced!
