G3 Athletes 1 & 2 on the Podium in the Vert180 Ski Mountaineering Race

A few weeks ago, the Vert180 night race took place at the Olympic Park in Calgary to see who could ski the most laps up and down in 3 hours.  The first in the Canadian Ski Mountaineering Race Calendar 2010/11, there was quite a bit of spandex and a crew of competitors out for the good time. G3's Melanie Bernier won on the women's side followed by fellow G3 athlete Martha Burley from Fernie, BC.

Solo Male: 1. Reiner Thoni, 2. Andrew Mcnab, 3. Alex Wigley
