I stayed away from Aspen where there was so much grass and stuff from the trees on Thursday. Other than that it was a pretty good ski. The upper part of Jack Rabbit was skiable, and a bit of Lookout was available, but the downhills were so icy and ridged they were almost dangerous. It was a bit sketchy so I only did it once.
I really enjoyed a slow ski. Beaver was in excellent shape so I did it a few times. Jackrabbit was all but abandoned so that was good too. Northern Lights was pretty much done after all the people on it on Saturday, and it was a bit crowded, so even though I love it I only did it three times.
I have no idea how to train for a ski race. Hopefully I am on the right track! (ouch)
