Climb to the Castle Adventure Weekend 2014

On Friday I rented a mini-van and drove Lewis, Leah, Clara, Jackson, and Talia to Lake Placid, NY for the Climb to the Castle rollerski race that goes up the auto-road up Whiteface Mountain.  It climbs for five miles.

Most arrived on time for the rendezvous

Made it to the summit of the mountain.  Go team!

Andy Newell and Erika Flowers.  Skiers are ugly.

Julia Kern was at a USST camp all week with her pal Katherine Ogden.  K.O. took 3rd overall.  Julia won the U-18 category.

Julia on the podium with Leah in second place.

Lewis won the U18 for the boys.

After such a fine effort, Lewis refueled at The Breakfast Club

On Sunday we hiked Hurricane Mountain on our route home.

Everyone had too much fun during the weekend and no one but the driver could stay awake on the ride home.

Congrats to the fine skiing displayed by all the CSU skiers.  I was so proud to introduce  you all to the U.S. Ski Team coaches and be able to say these were the CSU athletes.
