North American Ski Mountaineering Championships – Video by Lou Dawson March 23, 2010 written by Lou Dawson March 23, 2010 They made a nice one. Was that a guy in the start with a rope on his pack? (congratulations winners Pete Swenson and Monique Merill). 9 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post The Right Shovels for the Job next post Ymir, British Columbia — Trip Report 9 comments James March 23, 2010 - 5:38 pm Great effort ‘Mericans! Big, long course. Technical, icy…. Nice to see some familiar faces from Europe. One note Lou, you might want to change the title of your post to American Ski Mountaineering Championships. We do indeed need a continental championship race but this ain’t it. Maybe we could alternate the NA Champs between Canada and US by year…..eventually a World Cup might come of it!!! Dave Cramer March 23, 2010 - 6:57 pm Very cool; but why do they have to throw in so much speeded-up footage? Lou March 23, 2010 - 7:13 pm Dave, I thought that was odd as well. Seemed like they were trying to make up for lack of narration, though I was glad to see they made an effort to include some explanation of things… Mark March 23, 2010 - 10:52 pm Makes me want to train…and get some REALLY light gear. ScottP March 24, 2010 - 2:37 pm Looks crusty. And so fun. eric balog March 25, 2010 - 12:12 am thanks for posting the vid. looks like a rope, but i have to admit i paused the video and realized it’s actually a jacket strapped to a pack. too bad! Karl K March 25, 2010 - 10:55 am Where’s the snow? Pete March 27, 2010 - 8:29 am Was anyone wearing Onyx? 😉 Mike T March 29, 2010 - 8:21 pm Good one!
