Training at Porters
On Friday I headed down to Porters to check it out for the race this Saturday. I must say I like Porters. The staff are friendly to backcountry types like me, and there are lots of families enjoying the t bars that extend to the top of the mountain. The thing I tend to forget about the place is that its quite steep! That should make this first race a bit of a slog.The good news is we have a storm forecast to bring some snow this week, so (hopefully) it won't be too icy. Here are a couple of photos of the place. The t bar and the views.
