West Yellowstone, MT

The Far West crew made the 14 hour drive from snowy Truckee to snowy West Yellowstone.  Upon arrival we have been living a ski racer lifestyle, skiing twice a day with all you can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Life is Good!

Wednesday Morning  most of the juniors  competed in one of two sprint races.  Overall, Far West had great results with Katrin leading the J1 girls in the classic sprint.  In the afternoon the Biathletes competed in the 10k sprint race.  Dylan, Jordan, and Myself all skied solid races but struggled some in in the range.  Thanks to the Coaches Ben, Jeff and Glenn for fast skies and a Great Zero.
