Poll: Is 17-year-old’s long, solo wilderness trek a good idea?
Laina Rose, a 17-year-old young woman from Redding, has hiked - alone - a good portion of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail and says she wants to complete the trek. It’s a big challenge even for people with more experience and hikers who set out with companions, let alone a person not yet in college. What do you think, is such an adventure a good idea?

In this contest we are looking for appealing, tasty, and energizing foods that help you get the most out of your training. All you need to do is prepare the food, take a picture of it, and send us the recipe! No pre or post-workout food is too big or to small; too healthy or too decadent.

Submit the following to lander@fasterskier.com:

  1. Name and a valid email address (that you actually check)
  2. A photo of your post-workout food
  3. A recipe for said food

All submissions will be judged by a panel of current and former ski racers based on creativity, quality, and ability to refuel. Multiple submissions will be accepted but only one submission from a person/party will be judged. In addition, teams/clubs may enter group submissions.

The grand prize winner will receive a pair of Rottefella Excelerator Titan Bindings (Rottefella’s most luxurious and best bindings to date) and the utmost respect from fellow chefs of the nordic ski community. Second place will receive a pair of NNN bindings from Rottefella. Third place will receive a pair of new Rottefella insoles.

Do you ski on SNS bindings or are sponsored by another brand? You can still enter! If the allure of winning isn’t enough, Rottefella gear makes excellent gifts for friends or family members.

Winners will be notified August 15, 2014. Contact lander@fasterskier.com for more information.

17 and solo, she set out to hike the 2,650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail
Laina Rose stands just over 5 feet tall and carries a 30-pound backpack. Since starting her journey April 1, she has bushwhacked, post-holed and climbed more than 1,200 miles.

Laina Rose of Redding began walking the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail in April, heading northward – mostly by herself – from the Mexican border. Her goal is to reach Canada, a journey that was postponed earlier this month when she left the trail a few weeks after the portion shown above, near Sierra City. “She said she wanted to do something epic in her life,” said her mother, Paula Rose.

Rose takes a snack break after hiking 3 1/2 miles near Sierra City before continuing another 5 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail on June 18. Her journey’s constant companion: a 30-pound backpack.
