This week the United State Ski and Snowboard Association and the Rocky Mountain Development Team have been doing early morning alpine race training at the ski area. These girls can rip. Today we had some special visitors. Mikaela Shiffrin and two of her US Ski Team teammates, Lila Lapanja and Paul Moltzan, joined the crew on courses set up on the Upper Mountain. If you get a chance, I highly recommend attending a World Cup race to see these guys live. The speed, power, and ability of these athletes is not captured on film. It is an honor and a pleasure to have them spend a little time at The Basin.
