We are a group of Cross Country and Biathlon skiers who grew up in Vermont and are now gunning for the 2014 Winter Olympics which will be held in Sochi, Russia in February. Many of us went to the Vancouver Games in 2010 and some of us to the Torino Games in 2004. We are all World Cup level skiers and though our goals differ in small degrees, we are all training hundreds of hours a year and have been for at least the last 10 years. We want to raise Vermonter's awareness that the Games are coming up and that we have the potential to make up a good size portion of the US Olympic Team come this February. We feel that it makes watching any sport much more fun when you have a few people to watch who you know and respect, so we want to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves, get Vermonter's excited for the Games, as well as feel as though you know a few of the competitors this February. We hope to see you on the trail on August 25th! Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000 that will help with our many training expenses and get us to the Games in February!
