Alicia - maybe your input would be especially helpful being from Maine - any others who have info on this would be helpful too.
I recently saw a video of a Russian man training for Everest. This was an old video, and he has since successfully climbed Everest. The mountains in his area of Russia were particularly dangerous for a certain part of the year due to avalanches, and he want to avoid that danger while still getting training.
So what he did was he climbed up ski resort mountains because they are tended to and skiers made conditions less dangerous and ideal for snow slope slogs.
I want to do the same on Sugarloaf mountain, which is in Maine - mostly just for strength and cardio training beyond my typical gym schedule. Where would I even begin with this? Should I try going up the side of the ski slope to avoid skiers? I'm obviously not going to go right up the middle. Should I try to climb under the lifts if they are high enough?
Thanks in advance
