This week’s chairlift chat is with former U.S. Ski Team athlete and NCAA Champion, Tim Kelley, talking about college skiing and the state of ski racing in America.  Kelley explains how critical foreign athletes are to bring up the level of college skiing and pushing American athletes.

Tim explains that bringing up the level of American skiing comes down to lowering the cost to athletes and increasing accessibility creating a larger pool of athletes.  The three most important things to develop a ski racer, in Tim’s opinion, are love for the sport, running lots of gates, and having lots of fun.
