(Photo: Fischer/Nordic Focus) BOZEMAN, Mont. – When talking with the Sophie Caldwell, her humble demeanor would never reveal that she claimed the highest Olympic finish by a U.S. woman in cross country skiing at the 2014 Games. From her simple goals of increased experience and continued enjoyment of the sport, it would be hard to guess that she was part of the first U.S. women’s double podium with Kikkan Randall in the…

    A few snaps from a quick walk up to Port d’Aula on the French-Spanish border in the Pyrenees with Anne Arran who’s based in this area and runs Chez Arran. Just crossing in Spain we got hassled by these horses, I guess too many passing hikers have fed them so they’re a bit pushy and some care is needed, they’d easily nudge you and knock you over by accident.

(Photo: Andy Newell) Much has been said of the tight-knit dynamic of the U.S. Ski Team. Whether it’s the closeness of its members or the fun-filled atmosphere created by athletes and coaches, the Americans are often seen as the perfect example of a well functioning team.

    Sophie Caldwell (r) and Anya Bean (l) make their way down from the summit of Sacajawea Peak in Bozeman, Mont. As nordic skiers we are extremely ambitious, especially when it comes to our training plans. While there’s nothing wrong with aiming for many hours filled with intensity and distance during our volume weeks, it’s important to remember to be just as enthused with our recovery weeks. Recovery weeks are meant to allow our bodies to absorb the volume or intensity we’ve worked so hard for. By taking it easy we not only help our muscles soak up our hard work, but we…

    18 Jul 2014 | 12:38 am
    Mont d’Or is a major part of the skyline here in Leysin but it’s a peak I go up regularly and not particularly popular generally. That’s probably because it’s a bit straight up and down. And the up is very straight up taking a route directly up the ridge never venturing across the steep slopes. But the reward for climbing it should be high, it’s an outlier peak and gives views over the local area and beyond to Mont Blanc, the Jura and the Bernese Oberland.

    6 Jul 2014 | 11:57 pm
    This is one of the most popular routes we do around here combining a trip to a local mountain farm with a hike around the Pic Chaussy mountain. Blaise and his family make the local Etivaz cheese daily using the traditional methods. It’s an alpage Gruyère which means it’s made on the farm using milk from cows that graze on the high alpine meadows. Of course, there’s a chance to try some cheese! And you can buy some (vacuum packed) to take home or to take on the hike for your picnic! Leaving the farm we took a route up Pic Chaussy crossing parts of the long abandoned ski…
  • Lesser Butterfly-orchid, Platanthera bifolia

    Ian
    6 Jul 2014 | 12:01 am
    I’m pretty certain I’ve never seen one of these before; it’s an orchid that favours meadows or light woods which is where we found it. Walking between Pic Chaussy and Lac Lioson just between the light woods and meadows we found a ground of spiked rampions and sitting in the middle was this orchid. It’s a spiked rampion just poking into the photograph on the right side. It’s a night scented plant, like a lot of orchids, and at the most fragrant early evening where it’s scent attracts moths to pollinate.

    The summer trekking season is in full swing now and when I’m out with clients they often ask about the gear I use and why I pick it. I’m going to write a few posts on the blog to highlight some things I use and try to explain why I like them. I’m away at mountain refuges quite a lot for work, mostly they have a stock of shoes to use when you take off your hiking boots but sometimes I need to take a spare pair of shoes anyway. Sometimes I’m staying in a hotel or town for example, or camping and want something light to change into. For years I’ve been using Crocs…

    What’s behind your recent push to involve skiers and boarders in your efforts? Our ski seasons are getting shorter, and our Earth is getting warmer. We all need snow, but right now, snow needs us. Nobody sees and feels these impacts more than skiers and boarders. There were numerous international competitions that were canceled last year due to poor ski conditions—these aren’t random occurrences. We should be asking ourselves, what would we do when there’s no more snow, and what are we prepared to do to ensure that this scenario never becomes a reality? What are a few facts that every…

    Arnie Wilson talks to Chris Haworth, ‘Ski and Board’ magazine’s fitness editor, who’s come up with a fascinating argument for getting more pleasure from skiing on the piste. It may not sound as cool – but just think about it! This is one of Tommy Cooper’s (remember him?) daft jokes: “I went to the doctor the other day. I said ‘it hurts when I do that’. He said ‘ well don’t do it then!” Silly, I know – but it has some relevance to the bad press skiing’s been getting this winter. The off-piste has been more dangerous than usual. In years…

It means I stand out more, and I feel almost like a celebrity as all the hotel and tour vending staff we use know me and chat as I pass by.
