The Winter Teva Mountain Games presented by Eddie Bauer attracted some of the world's best athletes to Vail as a cadre of Olympians, national champions and young phenoms lined up to compete in nordic skiing and mixed climbing events on day one of the three-day festival on Friday.

Olympic skiers Leif Zimmerman and Rebecca Dussault won the men's and women's 10K nordic freestyle race respectively. Later, under the lights at Golden Peak, Sam Elias and Dawn Glanc won the men's and women's Eddie Bauer Mixed Climbing Competition.

Zimmerman (Bozeman, Mont.), a four-time national champion and member of the 2006 U.S. Olympic team, had a flawless race in the 10K at the Vail Nordic Center, winning comfortably with a time of 22:48. Josh Smullin (Steamboat, Colo.) finished in second place at 23:03 and Lars Flora (Anchorage, Alaska) rounded out the podium in third place at 23:15.

Dussault (Gunnison, Colo.), a teammate of Zimmerman's on the 2006 Olympic team, proved her strength by out-skating Morgan Arritola (Ketchum, Idaho) at the line and winning by just one second at 25:19. Lenka Palanova came in third place at 25:52.

In the 5K Nordic race, Shane Sluder (Vail, Colo.) won for the men and Audrey Powell (Vail, Colo.) won for the women.

At the Eddie Bauer Mixed Climbing competition, an invitational featuring 20 of the world's top mixed climbers, Sam Elias (Boulder, Colo.) beat Stanislav Vrba (Frisco, Colo.) in a final head-to-head race on the wall to claim overall victory. Dawn Glanc (Ouray, Colo.) bested Emily Harringtion (Boulder, Colo.) to win the women's competition.

The usage of a computer inside is preferred than outside activities. Like my brother, he stays home on his days off to play tiny fishing games and refuses to participate in family activities.

Clothing and Personal Items: Nurses must also be prepared for long shifts, so they often carry items like a change of clothes, a snack, and a water bottle. In addition to these items, nurses may also carry a stethoscope, a thermometer, and other personal items. Tom

As a result, these people use marijuana in large amounts for longer periods of time than what they intend to.
