Training for the Uphill Athlete Book Cover


SkiUphill – RunUphill is presenting the Banff leg of the Training for the Uphill Athlete Book Tour this Saturday at 6 PM at Banff Centre’s Kinnear Centre.

I spoke with co-authors Steve House and Scott Johnston about how they’ve applied conventional training principles to some of the more unconventional mountain sports many of us enjoy in the Bow Valley in this no-nonsense guide.

Tickets available here.


Steve House is also well known for being on the climbing team that made the first successful ascent of Howse Peak in 1999.  That mountain has been back in the news recently with the tragic passing of three world-class mountaineers in an avalanche last month.  I also spoke with Steve about his memories from their ascent and how the recent tragedy has hit the climbing community hard.
