I think it's a good idea - I'd also add hiking on the mountains, or at least on hills, as training activities in spring/summer periods. This is what we should normally do, anyway, all open-air activities are welcome,provided we burn calories - sleeping under a tree is NOT to be counted!!!!!
I've been hiking a park that has a number of climbs and descents... not that Minnesota has mountains... I'll try to make due. :)

We could count AT/Telemarking as well, as long as you earn your turns ;p
Sounds like a good plan to me there are a few (well compared to the mountains etc in America) hills around here that I could climb even in winter as well =]

I had a brain fart about a possible new challenge (for those of us who are about to enter summer--sorry, folks who are still skiing or who are in the S. Hemisphere!)... I realized that with my skiing goggles on ;-), I see my seasons as "skiing" and "not skiing" (aka gardening). ;-) But I thought that maybe we could still do something semi-mountain (or hill) oriented in the "off" season: we could aim to get a "mountain per week"... and that could be by hiking, or stair-climbing, or stair-step machine, or even step-ups. Anyone like that idea?
