New Training Toys!!

With winter just around the corner and my trip only a few months away I need to get started training and there is no better way to train than throwing on some brand new telemark ski boots and skinning up the mountain.  Skinning is probably the best workout I have ever had!  Basically you strap on your tele skis and boots, then you put "skins" on the bottom of your skis.  Skins let your skis slid forward but not backwards so you can basically hike up a mountain on your skis!  Awesome right!  Now I just have to wait for some snow!  I'll post pictures when I start skinning so you can get a better idea.

I'm also going to climb a 14er on Monday!  Not sure which peak yet but I'll post pictures and a little story either Monday night or Tuesday!
