Ski Racing in Australia!

By Lauren Fritz | October 22, 2013

As promised, the next Australian catch-up installment. After I’d been in AUS for about two weeks, we took a little drive north to Jindabyne, New South Wales for a weekend of racing in Perisher Valley. The drive was around five hours and took us out of the lush green landscape of the valleys around Bright […]

Australian Winter Fun

By Lauren Fritz | October 12, 2013

Australian Winter Fun While I was in Australia, the two internet cables that run under the ocean from America and feed the whole island continent’s internet needs got attacked by too many bottom-feeding sea creatures and thus there was no way to access the “World Wide Web” while I was away. JUST KIDDING. The rest […]

Alaska Fall Time and Park City

By Erik Bjornsen | October 10, 2013

The last month has been really fun! This is my third year in Anchorage and I think it has been one of the nicer falls so far. We did have something like 17 days where it rained every day which sounds horrible but it wasn’t the typical Anchorage rain where you go outside and get […]

Summer Training and Motivation

By Erik Bjornsen | August 20, 2013

It’s the middle of August already, which means a majority of the preparation for the upcoming ski season is over. This can be very nerve-racking or very exciting, but for me it’s mostly exciting. I feel more motivated then ever and that has resulted in a lot of good workouts. I know that the fitness […]

Adventures in Euro-land Part 1: Mapped Out

By Becca Rorabaugh | March 12, 2013

The last time I was in Alaska was November 13, 2012.  The last time I was in the United States of America was January 31, 2013.  The last time I blogged was… too long ago.  As I wrap up my tour of Europe I thought it might be fun to share a little map of […]

Photos: Minneapolis to Latvia

By Becca Rorabaugh | February 7, 2013

I am in Madona, Latvia and I race a 10k skate mass start in an hour and 45 minutes.  Since my last blog I have raced in Minneapolis, spent another week in a basement room recovering from a whole ‘nother cold, and subsequently traveled to Latvia.  Here’s the lowdown: picture format. The Minneapolis Tour de […]

Nationals: Immunodramatics and a Small Epiphany

By Becca Rorabaugh | January 13, 2013

When it comes to Nationals I seem to have a bit of a pattern.  I often get sick on the morning of December 25th, so, as I am opening presents with my family I feel a little postnasal drip that flourishes into a full-blown sore throat by the next day.  I spend the next 7 […]

Canmore Christmas

By Becca Rorabaugh | December 24, 2012

It looks like a clear, gorgeous, cold, white Christmas tomorrow.  I suppose that shouldn’t be surprising; Fairbanks is always like that, right?  This year it’s beautifully, incandescently, and predictably frigid at home– and I am not there.  A few weeks ago I decided to try an altitude camp before Nationals in Soldier Hollow.  I thought that […]

World Cup Whirlwind

By Becca Rorabaugh | December 9, 2012

This weekend was the largest and most overwhelming immersion in awesomeness that I have ever experienced.  Things seem pretty normal now: am now sitting placidly in the Calgary airport, I just finished re-reading The Hunger Games (which I still can’t put down, even when I know what happens next), and am sorting through my thoughts […]

Heading to the World Cup

By Becca Rorabaugh | December 4, 2012

And just like I was hoping, I made it to the world cup in Canada by the skin of my teeth.  Any more bubble-riding like that and I’ll have no skin left on my teeth (whatever that means).  In Bozeman I was sickeningly consistent, with 7th, 6th, and 7th places.  Other than Sadie, I may […]

Hoping for a Crescendo

By Becca Rorabaugh | November 29, 2012

Patience is not my forté as far as virtues go.  I still mentally squirm like a border collie puppy if anyone makes me wait for ice cream, movies, or the next book in a series.  Anticipation is supposed to sweeten the anticipated, but usually it sours my disposition so badly that I devour the event without […]
