Ski Trip: Deer Valley Utah - Cross Training
Velodiva and I to a ski vacation last week to Park City / Deer Valley, Utah. We stayed at the Marriott Mountainside at Park City. There was a lot of snow and the resorts have over 100 inches of base.
Our legs felt great skiing and all the bicycle training seemed to apply to the skiing. Even though the slopes are groomed, there was so much snow each day that the runs quickly turned into mogul fields which worked the legs even more. Here are some photos.

We arrived back on Saturday and went for a bike ride to rev the engines. We both felt great. We did a 3 hour ride on Sunday and rode up Old La Honda 7.2% grade 3.5 miles long to practice for our King of the Mountain race up the Sierra climb on Saturday.
