Eric on his way to get some from the Muir snowfield.
Eric Carter http://coastmountainskiing.com/ Stano Faban http://www.skintrack.com/ and Nick Elson http://infirmofpurpose.wordpress.com/ all from Vancouver BC currently, did the throw down this morning on Rainier. *Edit* A time of 4:19:12 on DC! C2C @ Paradise. The full details and the pictures below came from from Eric's web site this morning.
Check out Stano's web site now as well as his TR is up.

Hopefully their own web site write ups will clarify the actual details of their ascent. I saw literally only a few seconds of them coming and going. Of all the races I have been in or witnessed only the professional peloton going by is anything I have to compare. And it was only three guys! In person they were all very casual about the whole thing. I course I had to bring up the SLC pace as a comparison. They wouldn't have, while knowing it to the second.
We could hear their skins coming from a few hundred yards away on the perfect snow conditions as they literally blew past us. And Nick not even in Lycra or fully race kitted out for the style bonus points of the day ;-) Very fun for me to see it all unfold as they went up and then came ripping down.
Eric and Nick making it hard for me to even get a picture!
