12 Week Beginner Backcountry/Ski Mo Pre-Season Plan
Cascade EnduranceAll plans by this Coach
This 12-week plan is designed to take the beginner/intermediate endurance athlete toward a great season in the mountains, whether for backcountry ski touring or ski-mountaineering/randonee racing.
At a minimum you should be able to run 45-60min and train 4-5x per week to begin this plan. Access to hilly terrain is a great benefit but many people have followed these training prescriptions in flat country, utilizing treadmills, stair masters and tall buildings as their vertical.
