Oh hell yes. Ever wondered what it’d be like to run up one of those hills that ski jumpers go down? Now’s your chance. If wagering were legal, who’d you put money on? Joe Gray? Kaci Enman?

Looking for more vertical races in North America? Right this way.

Norway’s ski team has five basic dictums: The first is don’t be a jerk. Number five mandates that Friday night is taco night.  Here are the rest.  Great read!
