Winter Base Plan along with with Alpine & Nordic Skiing?

Hi all,

I would like advice on what training plan to buy in order to base train this Winter. I live in Park City, Utah, and plan on doing a bunch of Alpine and Nordic Skiing this winter along with my base training, weight lifting, etc.

Which plan would you recommend whereby I can get my cycling workouts in, gym workouts, and enjoy the slopes 5ish days a week.

My goal for cycling next season is a Gravel Event on August 28th, 2021 in Utah (it’s 100 miles with 12,000 feet of climbing).

FWIW, I’m 52 years old, have 8-12 hours to train on my bike, and work for myself so my schedule is very flexible.

Any help is appreciated.

TY

Awesome @scott.levitt - for the Wasatch All Road in late August you want to adopt our 32 week off season training plan to your nordic skiing

My best advice for integrating your xc skiing to this plan is to FtFP the 10 weeks of weights as best as possible and ski on the weekends. The Sweet Spot TSS rides can go 1:1 with your nordic skiing.

Once you get thru with the 10 weeks of weights your mid-week opens considerably for more xc skiing. And then of course when the snow melts you keep FtFP’ing.

Hope that helps - the Wasatch races looks incredible - with all that climbing best to win in the kitchen as well!
