It's Sochi Time!!!





"The Olympics remain the most compelling search for excellence that exists in sport,
and maybe in life itself."
Dawn Fraser
Australian Swimmer
3 time Olympic winner


Yep!  That's snow...and that's Mammoth!!!
it snowed when I left last week...
and it's supposed to snow tomorrow and this weekend when I head back!!!

But more important...
the Olympics have started!!!
Did you know that the little town of Mammoth is represented by
6 athletes who are from or have trained in Mammoth???

John Teller...ski cross
Kelly Clark...snowboard
Trevor Jacob...snow board
Greg Bretz...snowboard
(are you sensing a trend here???)
Stacey Cook...downhill
Kaya Turski...Canadian freestyle skier


Keep your fingers crossed...
It's supposed to be all about the experience for these athletes...
but winning is the dream!!!

  8. I love the winter Olympics! We got snow down here in Portland yesterday. And of course Mt. Hood got a good dumping too. Yahoo!

  9. I was hoping you'd show us snow. (Downhill is my favorite, so I'll root for your Stacey Cook.)

  10. I am green with envy :). Love seeing your snow. I love Winter Olympics too. Snowboarding events are on in 30 minutes. I'll be looking out for Mammoth's competitors. Exciting!!!

  11. Just watched some snow-board events on the TV - looked like a cross between winter sports and skateboarding! Nice.

  12. I love to watch snowboard (I'm watching it now). Glad to see you got some of the white stuff, just a few more feet and you'll be caught up.
