I grew up in western MA, so I got a lot of exposure to winter sports, but the nearest bobsled track was in Lake Placid, so have never seen it in person. I did spend most of my school years in and around alpine ski programs so I have a good idea of both the rigors of training in the off season and the thrill of competing in season. My kids now ski and snowboard, and we are quite limited in the season here, as it is a 3-6 hour drive depending on where you live, so we get maybe 10-15 days skiing per year. Likely they will not be in a race club, although the little one is fearless and I would love to get her more snow time. Just not feasible when our jobs are in the big city. Thanks for thinking of me though.
