World Cup Tracks Make Pajarito Seem Like Heaven

Ever want to complain about the ski conditions on the local trails? Here's what the World Cup skiers faced in the most recent WC race in Otepaa, Estonia:


I recently got to jump into the NCAA race at Enchanted Forest. I was shocked at how bad the skiers, coaches and service techs chewed up the tracks on the race course. With the great snow, cold temps, etc., I would have expected better conditions, but it wasn't so much the case. I just saw how the skiers were just so good that they didn't seem to care, nor even notice.
Here's another picture of the WC course in Estonia. It looks like a track we had to ski in Anchorage at the 2003 Master's Nats:
