I agree with you Dan. I have done the Peak 7 times and love it. I also love adverse & challenging conditions, however 2008 was the only race I have ever done where I actually thought "you know, I could die up here". Got to have love & respect for the mountains.
Good luck, see you up there !

Ben, don't know if you have been on the mountain in our summer storms, but this wouldn't be WI snow, it would be nasty stuff and likely come along with lightning and really unsafe conditions. Running in nice fluffy snow is loved around here for many months of the year, but summer storms are not anything you want to be in at 13-14K feet fully exposed and no shelter to find. Good luck in the race.
