Uphill

Shoot, why would anyone want to ski down Whiteface when they can ski up the toll road.

@ Harv.  BTW overall men's winner Robert Duncan Douglas, 50 years old, two time former Olympian in biathlon, his main comp was like 20 or so years younger.

Man that's fast.  I went up there twice on my bike and both attempts were over 1hr and 10min.

Re: Uphill

IMHO, the ONLY rational for riding uphill is the downhill.

Been up many times on my bike. I think my best time was about 1hr 15min from the cross roads at Wilmington.. When I use to do the uphill race in the late spring there were people doing it on unicycles and tandems. I can't imagine that - but I have seen it with my own eyes.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Has anyone done the Whiteface Sky race?  It's a running race from the base of the gondi up to the summit via Cloudspin.  Scheduled July 8 this yr.  I'm toying with the idea of running it & looking for tips.
