Skier's Edge to Sponsor Kate!


WOW! I'm so excited! The Skier's Edge Company is going to send me a machine to train on, and see how it affects my progress! This is an incredible workout, I got to play on one at Fuxi's in Government Camp at Mt. Hood, and now, I get to hop on one of these suckers a couple of times a week here at home.

A day like today would have been perfect, Ethan is sick, I had to call out from Bridger so I could give him snuggles and saltines, but in between puking, he and Bodhi are happily watching Speed Racer cartoons. I could have spent about an hour on the machine total today, in 10-15 minute bursts. Very, very cool.

Thanks, Skier's Edge!

It will be fun to see what an everyday skier will think of skiers edge. I have I always wondered about it!

Yeah! That's what I was thinking, I'm curious how it will affect my fitness for skiing and bootpacking!!

So far, its a lot like a retraction turn, and MAN its hard to get those pedals down onto the flags!!

Its a great workout, though!

Okay, its official, I'm in love. I'm fairly convinced that this machine helped me pass my 3 by teaching me how to retract. Very awesome. Great for leg strength! Very very cool!
