Patrick and I went up to the Boulder Mountain Tour in Sun Valley, Idaho over the weekend to ski with some of the best in the west and have some fun on real snow. It was a successful day with both of us cracking the top 10 (Patrick 5th, myself 9th) to earn a bit of money. Patrick also won the first preem to claim a bit extra dough. It was a new course this year, with a few more climbs and a few more Ks, which turned out to make it a more fun and interesting race, and probably helped us out a bit since we are from altitude. The Toko blue wax we raced on was excellent as well. Thanks to the volunteers in Ketchum that made it happen on thinner than usual snow.
