We love getting photos from members of the #DodgeBootFamily. Most are great skiing shots with proud Dodge Ski Boot users. But, long-time #DodgeBootFamily member JEFF CRAIG takes the prize for the most unique photos of his Dodge Ski Boots.
We’ll let Jeff explain:
Kathy and I just arrived home from Zermatt where we were married high on the hill in the Riffelalp chapel (no heating). The reason for this email is how were dressed for the ceremony! As you can see in the pictures we were in our ski clothing and boots. Obviously I was wearing my Dodge boots!
I thought you would appreciate the pictures.”
Thanks Jeff. Congratulations!
Great photos. Now we have to have Kathy join the Dodge Boot family, too!!

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.
Thanks for watching!

This week’s chairlift chat is with Jonathan Nordbotten talking about his Olympics from losing a ski fifteen seconds into his first run of the slalom to winning a bronze medal in the team event.
Nordbotten was the third male skier for Team Norway in the Alpine Team Event and focused his efforts on supporting his team as he most likely would not be competing, which reminded him of his college years at UVM.
Nordbotten also talks about how Norway started taking the team event seriously this summer and jokes about how surprising it is that training makes a difference.

This week’s chairlift chat is with Ivica Kostelic about what it means to be an Olympian. Ivica won Olympic medals in 2006 in Torino, 2010 in Vancouver, and 2014 in Sochi. This year he’s in PyeongChang helping the Croatian Team.
Ivica explains that being an Olympian is the biggest thing in sport and how it’s not always about winning, it’s about unity. It’s about everyone coming together in peace.
Then Ivica discusses his next goal, a 400 km polar expedition across Iceland, in the wilderness with no resupply. The goal is to not touch anything that has to do with civilization for the entire three-week trip. He describes his grueling daily routine and food consumption planning among many other things.
