Soldier Hollow 

Timpanogos Mtn. road side picture near Soldier Hollow.

Soldier Hollow site of 2002 Winter Olympic Nordic events.

Started the morning running friend Alex to hospital for knee surgery 7:30am Heber. While heading to Sundance area to hike I took the sign to Soldier Hollow. Special $15 for trail access, rental of boots, skis, poles. Today was my first day on skate skis. I flailed up the first short hill as I figured out the skinny free heal slickster skis. Reach the top and jump right onto the "low angle" downhill slope. I am cooking down the hard early morning groomer with these little skis with no edges and go down hard, grinding the skin off my forearm....good morning! Started to get my mojo working when I went to the training oval. They have a 30 target shooting range for the Biathlon . I only saw one person skiing with rifle. For $19 you can rent a gun to protect your self. Amazing technique to ski skating, enjoyed it and would do again.
