Pippa Middleton isn't ready to say goodbye to winter. The royal-in-law competed in a rigorous cross-country ski race in Norway this past weekend, and she kicked butt as per usual.

Middleton and the other competitors were tasked with skiing 33.5 miles from rural Rena to Eastern Norway Olympic center of Lillehammer while carrying a backpack weighing more than seven pounds. No easy feat. While Duchess Kate's younger sister didn't win—that honor went to Norway's Crown Prince Haakon—she completed the race in an impressive five hours and 58 minutes.

This is the younger Middleton's second competitive ski race of the year. Back in January, she hit the slopes in Mürren, Switzerland, to compete in the legendary Inferno race. With winter winding down, we expect she'll soon trade her skis for her bike or swimsuit—last year she competed in a 50-mile swim and run race and a 54-mile charity bike ride.
