305 inches of snow

I just spent one of my favortie weekends of the year up in Calumet Michigane where I was competing in the Great Bear Chase which is the last x-ski race of the year.

Calumet has 305 inches of snow this year.  It’s amazing to see how much snow there is.   Check the photo below.  Basically all you see are the roofs of the smaller houses.  It’s nuts.  When you are skiing on the trail it’s like you are on a sunken highway with 8 feet of snow on each side of you.  You never see any deer tracks up there because the deer could never survive trying to get through the woods.

The last race of the year is memorable because you are usually a bit tired from the Birkie and it’s coming to a sweet end with the warm temps we are having.  It was great to do the race with my training buddies, Duane Lee, and David Leske.  We train, race, and have a ton of fun on and off the trail.  We have had a great year of skiing other than training in the severe cold which is really hard on the body.  Spring skiing is always the best, hopefully we can get a few more days of skiing when you can get some sun on the face.

I somehow managed to win my age group in the 25km classic race.  The pic below is one with Nancy Bauer and myself.  Nancy won her age group.  Nancy is an incredible skier and she has traveled the world skiing in world master championships with her husband Bill.  Nancy and Bill are parents to one of North America’s greatest cross country skier.  Their son John is a 3x Olympic Cross Country skier.   Calumet brings the old finnish skiers of the area out to race.  It’s incredible to see some of the skiers skiing incredible well into their 70’s.  I had a guy who was 67 years of age beat me.  Now that’s pretty impressive.

It feels fantastic today being 53 degrees.  The days are getting longer and I just love the sun and heat.  This has been one of the toughest winters I can remember.  How would you like to have 305 inches of snow to deal with yearly?

A big congrats to the Unity boys basketball team.  It’s their first trip to state.  It’s been 35 years since I played in the 1979 state tourney.  Wow, that was a quick 35 years.

Until next time, get out and enjoy the sun and warm weather, we could get a couple of feet of snow yet.  Dr. E
