Coliseum Trail Hike

posted in: RDNordic, Track Attack | 0

The group bagged a summit! Despite the absolutely frigid winds at the top of the bowl, Red Deer’s intrepid skiers bundled up and hiked to the top of Coliseum Mountain. There was time for a short victory snack on the summit, and then came the knee-jarring descent down the (30+) switchbacks. At the bottom, it was pretty gratifying to see just how far we had come.

A big thank you goes out to the weekend’s organizers, and to the kitchen helpers who provided two awesome meals! What a great way to kickstart our season together!
