    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    I know she's from Vail but she honed the skillz on the icy eastern hard pack of Burke's training hill .
    She likely won't be skiing much on this side of the big salty pond for the rest of the year.

    That is now 3 first places on the year! Tied for most WC wins by a pre-18 year old.

    Great NYT article
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    We all like her way more than Lindsay!! In all honesty though she is pretty humble. We'll see if that changes

    Great that the young lady has hit her stride.

    BUT
    A 17 year old girl with national media attention, this never ends well.

    Read about her MTT. She is very grounded, even starstruck at her competitors whom she is now beating.

    I read it. You think the press is going to treat her differently?

    That awe shucks thing will not last long. From what I read she sounds like a very impressive young woman. And it appears a pretty solid familly?
    Or have they built (Universal Skier)

    I just don’t like that the media looks to be ramping up to throw the Celebrity laser on her. Let see how that all goes

    Proud to have been her first grade teacher! She was ripping it at age 7 too!

    My brother-in-law is her History teacher at Burke. He says she is an excellent human.
