The ski mountaineering world championships started in Andorra on Monday. A strong team of racers representing the United States are competing with 22 other nations. As of today, two of the four races are complete with the US making a strong showing.
My adventure racing and Pierra Menta teammate, Monique Merrill, is especially proving that the US has a presence in ski mountaineering. Mona has placed in the top 10 for both the vertical and the individual races. Awesome job Mona – keep it up!
The team race is Friday and the relay will take place on Saturday. Travis Scheefer and Nina Silitch are updating their websites with race recaps and photos. Also, results can be found at the ISMF site.
