Pre-season training at PCMR

Today I went back up for another pre-season – lunch hour (call that an extended lunch hour…) training session at PCMR, including these training sessions I am now up at 15 outings so far this season. I get to skin up from the First Timer parking lot, through Homerun and up to the Payday top lift station. That’s about 1,300 feet elevation gain. That is as much as you can do right now if you expect to ski down all that you skinned up. However if you need to extend your work-out session and you are ready to face “variable” cover (as in snow + rocks+ branches + all the other unidentifiable if not unspeakable stuff) then you can skin all the way up to the top of the Crescent lift. This will give you close to 1,900 feet of elevation gain. Of course if the resort really opens on the 21st, as scheduled, then this training terrain will be gone just two days from now… In the mean time here are some pictures taken today (click to enlarge):
