After the fun and excitement of the Norquay telemark race, Cindy and went out to Vernon the following weekend for the Spring Loaded telemark festival. Longer drive, but weather was great. It was enjoyable to be out with such a good group of people, meeting new friends, and learning the ropes a bit on gear, techniques and equipment. I didn't pull my phone out much for photos, but this was Sunday morning early before racing started, and before we had slipped the course several times. This was closing day at Silver Star - but such beautiful spring skiing. All in it was successful - I did well for a non FIS racer, got split times to actual fast people for me to ponder for the off season, and won a boot bag, glasses and handmade bamboo poles for the three different wins. On the to-do list are track down some GS skis, NTN binding risers, and figure out what I'll do for race training for next year!
