Sochi, Here We Come

Well, not literally. I'll be watching the Sochi Olympics on TV, just like you. Even though I've been covering freeskiing's inclusion in the Olympic for since well before the announcement was made in 2011, I won't actually be going to Sochi. But that's OK. I'll still be eagerly tuning in to see what happens. 

I don't get to cover ski racing or mogul skiing all that much in my job, but I love all aspects of skiing and the athletes who compete on the elite level in any of skiing's (many and diverse) disciplines. Which is why I was delighted to write a few stories on ski racing and freestyle skiing for Powder Magazine's Olympic preview coverage. 

Check out this story on the women's U.S. Ski Team (even without Lindsey Vonn, our team is stacked) and this interview with 18-year-old ski racing phenom Mikaela Shiffrin. Stay tuned for more stories from Powder's Olympic coverage
