We are thinking Memorial Day Weekend 2022 is the year to assemble Team On The Lift Podcast. This may sound like skier blasphemy, but… Dibs on NOT skiing. You’ll see why – The race is a 93 mile relay. The mass start is the Nordic leg. The timing chip is then handed-off to the downhill skier or snowboarder. But wait – the “downhillers” start their leg uphilling. That is – climbing 900 vert feet before racing down Mt. Baker. Then 40+ miles of cycling; 8 miles of running, 18 miles of canoeing, cyclocrossing, and kayaking into the finish line. Nearly 3000 participants make the trek to Bellingha ..read more

Richie Owen shows us the way around Mt. Hutt. Actually, he shows us the way all around the South Island of New Zealand. This is the one destination that, well, wasn’t a destination last year. The nation shut it’s borders and held them tightly during the miserable era we call COVID. And the ski industry persuaded the government to let the mountains prove they could safely do their thing and let the people ski. So Summer 2020 (US summer; NZ Winter; i.e. June, July, August) had the Kiwis on the snow. This is the land of adrenaline. From the drive up to the mountain, to bungee jumping, jet boat ..read more
