Teton Ridge Classic

The Teton Ridge Classic is a great ski race. Beautiful scenery, nice rolling terrain, tons of snow, cheerful volunteers, lots of hot soup and bread at the finish. I had the added benefit of driving over to Driggs, Idaho with the Idaho Nordic crew. Turned out that it was perfect fish scales and/or zeros conditions. I left both of those pairs of skis in Reno. But Mike “Silver Fox” Weber set me up on his extra pair of fishies. Throw in their v05 Finite structure tool and the skis were dynamite.  Oh and one last critical piece of equipment: my lucky Bill Clinton ski tie. Needles to say,  It was a good race.
