Telluirde to Valley X!

This morning when the phone rang it was nothing else than relaxed voice in the other end. It's the day before our race from Crested Butte to Aspen (The Grand Traverse) and we wanted to do something easy. We meet up at chair 4 around 10.00 am and headed out, still not 100 % sure of what we were going to do. In the lift we were talking about the race and what gear we needed to get after we were done skiing. Also about when to leave in the morning to get there in time for gear check in and race meeting. After a short boot pack we stod on the top of the ridge looking down on our run and Valley X. That's what we ended up skiing. It offered great spring corn snow all the way down with some grass skiing in the end.

We changed tyre on our ride (car) that we will be using for tomorrow and headed back to Telluride and Jagged Edge! Erik, the owner of the best mountaineer and outdoor store in Telluirde, Jagged Edge had offered to sponsor us with the gear we needed for the race. A BIG Thanks for setting us up with everything we needed to Jagged Edge and Erik. Because there is a load of things you need as mandatory gear for this race. We are racing through the night between friday and saturday and finish hopefully 12-14 hours later. The race start tomorrow at 23.00 (11.00 pm) and we are now all set and super exited to race. Also a Thanks to Peak Performance and POC Sports for supporting me all winter and year around.

I have prepared way better for this race and feel strong. So does Himay and he's been going big everyday since last race in Aspen we did together. So we expect to have a great time and lot's of fun! Our main goal is to finish and secondary within a good time!
