It is that time again! Time for the Lobo ski team to get into preseason training for the 2010 season and another shot at the NCAA title.

We took our first training trip to Red River on Sept. 19-20. After we arrived, we divided up the team and played a tough soccer game, then finished up with a core workout.

Later in the afternoon, the Alpine squad did some strength and endurance training, while the Nordic team roller-skied from Questa to Red River.

On Sunday morning, we started hiking at 7 a.m. on the East Fork Trail to Wheeler Peak. Everyone made it to the top of New Mexico's highest peak by 10 a.m.

After a wild run down the mountain, we were all a little stiff and tired, but it was a great team-building weekend and everyone had lots of fun.
