Training for the Uphill Athlete is a training bible for the most challenging mountain endurance sports. 

Authors Steve House, Scott Johnston and Kilian Jornet address the most important principles for mountain runners and ski mountaineers looking to perform at the highest levels. All three are legends in their fields. Training for the Uphill Athlete is perhaps the most complete book ever written about training and performance in the mountains. 

Steve House is one the most foremost alpine climbers. His fast and light ascents in the Himalaya, Karakoram and particularly Alaska represtent some of the boldest and most futuristic climbs of modern times. 

Scott Johnston is an Olympic level cross country skiing coach and Kilian Jornet is one the most celebrated and successful endurance runners ever. Together they have created Training for the Uphill Athlete - the definitive manual for the mountain athlete.
