Jacques D. got back from his epic ski touring trip in BC earlier this month. In response to whether CrossFit prepared him for the trip, he wrote: "Ski touring is 90% slow climbing, 10% skiing. We talk about climbing at an all-week pace. The idea is to never stop and never red-line. CrossFit helped a lot with overall conditioning—a lot of wear and tear and muscle soreness. Having strong quads and hamstrings helped a lot to avoid fatigue." If you have questions about ski touring, Jacques would be psyched to talk to you about it!
