ESG Tune-Up… A cold day on Colden

It was cold and windy up there

What better way to tune-up for the ESGs than with a ski/hike assault on Mt. Colden?  Peru Nordic’s Kobak and Fiegl skied in to Avalanche Camps before switching to snowshoes for the hike up to Lake Arnold and Mt Colden.  There was good amount of new snow and chilly single-digit temperatures up high.  Buffeted by strong winds, the duo battled the cold conditions, which hopefully has set up Kobak for a good showing in the weekend’s Empire State Games.
