I left early in the morning from home and drove up for a few hours of biathlon practice and skiing. Conditions were mild (-5C / 25F), with light snow, breezy and cloudy. Trail conditions were excellent. I spent time on the biathlon range the first hour, working on my standing position and skiing quick segments around the penalty loop before returning for more range practice. A map is included below of the range and the penalty loop.
My accuracy was about 60% overall in the standing position. Photo below of my shot pattern.
Following that, I packed up the range and skied for 45 minutes, which is mapped below. It was pretty difficult skiing for me, not being in very good shape and simply trying to do anything at this altitude. Enjoyable, nonetheless. I took one digger and slid out onto my butt. I was descending in a curvy section that happened to have 2 classic tracks laid out on the center part of this particular trail. As it narrowed, I was trying to avoid the tracks but managed to catch one ski into a track and lost my balance.
Time: 45 minutes.
Avg. Speed: 5.2 mpg.
