The article presents information related to a skiing training session of instructor Erling Christiansen. During the training session Christiansen met with the rest of the Nordic ski team at the team's office and they left for the 21-mile trip to Eldora Mountain Resort. A brisk wind kicked up at the ski area, where fresh snow still was falling. The car ride took the skiers from 5,430 feet above sea level in Boulder to a dizzying 9,200 feet at the bottom of the ski area.
