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!!!!! emoticon

Is it wrong to be planning spring and summer weekend hiking trips even though it is only January?

Bump. Now that we're in the N hemisphere's winter, I'm definitely game. ;-)

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?
