Welcome to “Chairlift Chats”

You never know who you might meet on the chairlift and what you might talk about.

This weeks edition of Chairlift Chats is with Jan Hudec who ended a 20- year Olympic medal drought for Canadian alpine skiers tying for the bronze medal with Bode Miller in the men’s super-G event. Two years later he parted ways with Alpine Canada and is now representing the Czech Republic on the World Cup tour.

This Chairlift Chat discusses switching nationalities, what it takes to make it in skiing and life, and the magical power of his Olympic bronze medal.
