Fun in the Snow or Trail Running

Snowfall has been prolific so far this Winter in the Sierra Nevada, which straddles the border between California and Nevada.

The feet of snow that have piled up in recent days in multiple atmospheric river events vaulted snowfall totals this season over 200 inches at the highest elevations.

So sometimes we need to cast aside our spring and summer running goals and  take to the snow.  This has been a ski season to remember.

Evolution of the Trails

I came across this one form  recently and loved the background it provided. The trails we run have years of history packed deep beneath the ground. Previous generations of trail users traveled great distances to pursue what they were passionate about–just as today’s ultra runners do. The evolution of these trails has a long and interesting history. Check out Amy’s rundown on how it all began here.
