Snowless in Eagan

Derek Wallen, an Apple Valley resident, was roller skiing through our neighborhood on a Friday evening. He's been ski racing since 2001 and has participated in the Vasaloppet and Birkebeiner races. When he's not roller skiing, Derek works as a graphic designer in downtown Minneapolis.

  3. Graphic design and Vasaloppet, cool mixture! We were actually lucky enough to see the first snow, high up in the mountains last weekend.

  5. Ah, youth! Did you see the article in today's Trib about the aging of the outer tier suburbs? Guess this guy gives the lie to the increasing trend of an aging population.

  6. Given that Minny-sota only has two seasons [(1) Snow and (2) Road Repair], he won't have to wait long for the white stuff...

  8. I've never seen such a thing. Absolutely fascinating!

    I'm too much of a scaredy cat to try something like that though. ;)

  10. Un grand sportif doit savoir glisser sur une neige qui n'existe pas ! Come in France, we have veritable snow !
