Ski Team- getting ready

and the skis are all labeled and zipped up in ski bags

Tim is prepping for the Wintergreen Racing Team's preseason training. The ski season has actually started, but it is raining in Virginia and it doesn't usually get cold enough to make snow until Christmas, sometimes it is after New Years. So we fly west to get some time on the mountain... This year there are even more racers going than in the past so Tim is helping Coach. And I'm going to be "Team Yates" team mom and help keep it all together... but anyway...

A month or so ago I shared a quick post, Tim's company DataXstream was helping support two of the USA Alpine Athletes. One is Kiley Staples. And I just found a pretty cool article that explains rather succinctly who she is and why we should watch her. So here ya go: Kiley Staples : ASPEN, Colo. — "Kiley Staples possesses a golden pass so powerful it just might help the promising U.S. ski racer jump start her career again.
By virtue of capturing the Nor-Am overall title last season, Staples gains automatic entry into every World Cup event in 2011-12." more
