First Windblown meet a success

We had a great turnout for 2014 Windblown Ski-O #1, with 27 people participating.  The Red course was the most popular, with 18 starts.  US Team member Adrian Owens and Alex Jospe blew away the field with times of 42:34 and 42:54 but teenager Kestral Owens was right behind at 42:55.  Perhaps the most courageous entry though on Red was Sara Mae Berman’s 3:04:30.  And despite his gray beard Jim Arsenault keeps on skiing like youngster, coming in at 50:33.

The funny thing is that as course setter I thought of the Red course as including some really exciting downhills but most of the skiers complained of the ups.  That must be because the climbing takes a time while the descents flash by which gives a perception there is more climb.

Many thanks to Al and Andy Jenks of Windblown for all their support, to Ken Walker and Larry Berman for picking up controls and to David VanDorpe for standing in line to get me lunch.

    It is awesome to be able to do that you feel like you are flying. I want to try that too, but I don’t have the guts to do that, but I hope someday I can also have the courage to do that and have a taste of flying
