The weather is cold and clear. The wind has died down. The forecast calls for a high of 40 degrees—warm enough to be comfortable, but not so warm that the snow will turn into a wet, heavy slush in the afternoon. My skis are tuned, and my legs are rested (well, as rested as it’s possible to get by taking a single day off yesterday). So it’s all over but the skiing for the 100K Vertical Challenge to benefit Two Top Adaptive Sports Foundation!
At Whitetail, 100,000 vertical feet is roughly equal to 107 runs. My plan is to ski 10 runs per hour nonstop in the morning; take a brief break in the afternoon; then continue skiing at the 10-runs-per-hour rate until I’m done. Be sure to check my Twitter feed, as I’ll be live-Tweeting the event. Wish me luck!
