This is the first ever episode of SkinTrack.com podcast! It’s not fully podcast-like in a sense that you can download it (will come later) but you can definitely just sit back and listen instead of reading.
For this first episode, I chose to interview my good friend Melanie Bernier who is one of the most inspirational people I know, and a fellow member on the Canadian National Ski Mountaineering Team.
Melanie is one of the most accomplished skimo racers in North America with a 4th place from 2013 Pierra Menta being one of her career highlights. She is fine tuning her game every season and her improvements are results of long-term daily hard work, strong commitment and big passion for skimo.
In this interview we discussed:
- Melanie’s last winter Euro racing campaign and her most favourite moments
- her upcoming trip back to Europe for more World Cup action
- current training
- nutrition (Paleo diet)
- her current racing gear
- skimo pole lengths
- and her future goals
