Vertical Week photo contest winner @holholden started training for her first Ultra Marathon during the week.⠀

“The Vertical Week was a great opportunity for me to start building my strength and climbing skills ahead of my upcoming training season for my 1st 50 mile Ultra Marathon - the #Squamish50 in August which is a tough, mountainous course with 11,000 feet (3350m) of climbing! ⠀

I set myself the goal of covering a similar amount of climbing during Vertical Week so I spent a lot of time on a local trail called the #BCMC which starts at the base of Grouse Mountain climbing to the top. This trail has 850m of elevation gain in just 3km of climbing! I ended up doing this trail 4 times in the week (3 times within one 24hr period!) then finished off the week running trails with my local run crew, Vancouver Running Company Flight Crew, surpassing my 3k goal and hit 4000m for the week instead!", says Hollie.⠀

Vertical Week photo contest winner @samirenner put in a couple of big ski tours and 7 500 meters of elevation gain during the week. ⠀

“This photo was taken on the last of three summits at the “#Watzmann-überschreitung” , a famous summer tour in my hometown with over 24km and 2500m of climbing. The goal for me was to do this very technical tour with skis. As I reached the third summit, I shared my last Powerbar with a bird."⠀

The Vertical Week was also about enjoying the moments and sharing the experience. Here are the 3 photo contest winners one by one! @coberschneider snapped this one in #Austria .⠀

"We found some beautiful lines in the backcountry with lift-supported ski touring and I managed to get some good shots. And that's how I also spent the rest of the Vertical Week, ski touring in the mountains around #Salzburg and trying to capture the beauty of the winter landscape and some more skiing action before the snow starts melting again”, Christoph explains.⠀
