Target CTL for Ski Mountaineering

    I enjoyed the article referencing CTL targets for various mountaineering objective such as an 8000M peak without oxygen. What would you say would be a good CTL target range for high level ski alpinism moving at a fast pace and being able to do 3000m in a day? Target goals would be something like Kain Face on Mt Robson or East Face of Cascade while moving fast and being able to move at paces somewhat comparable to a North American ski mountaineering racer. Target CTL for a targeted vert speed would also be very interesting.

    Thank you and looking forward to your reply!

    Be careful about prioritizing the metric over the activity. And CTL scores are really only comparable to the person using them.

    In every sport aerobic capacity is always a “more is better” quality (but not so with anaerobic), so get your CTL as high as possible in as sport-specific a manner as possible.

    And lastly, 100 is a nice round number. 🙂
