It’s snowing today, so here’s a cross country ski picture from a couple winters ago tahoedonnerassociation. So sad I only got to go once this year.

Wood shop turned ski shop today. I’ve been using that fire hazard of an iron since I was a kid racing Nordic and waxing skis in a freezing horse stall at Tahoe Donner XC Ski Center. I think my Mom bought it for Paul and I at a thrift store in Tahoe. It’s always done the job just fine. #nordork #tahoedonnercrosscountry #tahoedonnerxc

Is this how you shoulder szn?

This time of year, even more gear starts going into the pack, whether it's needed or not. Especially as long as I still try to find mountaintops on foot.

Jumping out of July 💥

It was a MONTH of running & training for me. I motored through more training volume than I've probably ever strung together, and made it out to a lot of unfamiliar local spots. Now, it's time to race & hopefully adventure. Feeling fit & hungry. Let's rage. 🤘🏼

Together with my Beanie Girl, this was Day 1 on the skate skis for the season.  The trails were a bit SKETCH...but it’s better than nothing!

We probably should have hit the trails earlier than 4:15 PM, since daylight was dismal from the start🤦🏻‍♀️. At least we got out and made it back unscathed👍🏼😃!

Skiing downhill by braille on skinny ski’s with numerous ruts and dirt patches, well...enough said😆🤪!
Let’s keep snow dancing!

We put on a snow crit with a motley crew of riders at today's demo at Tahoe Donner XC and there was some hilarity! 
And a big thanks to Tahoe Donner XC for letting the 60+ folks get out on fat bikes, many for the first time ever, on your incredible property! Also a shout out to our local shop Paco's for helping us in style. -Pep shelookswest

We are so excited to be able to make snow this winter at the Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center. In the meantime, please be aware that work is being done in the Alder Creek Adventure Center parking lot and on select base-area trails. Please stay clear of active constructive areas. Thanks!⁠

My demos are rarely, ever just your run of the mill bike demo. I dropped the flag (yellow grease chamois) to start off this derby-crit thing with riders on an array of Salsa fat and plus.
