DOUBLE EVENT ALERT: NorAm Alpine Racing

Words by John Caldwell.

 

Ah yes. The crack of the racing gates. The woosh of metal edges digging into snow. The clanging of the cowbells. The roar of the crowd at the finish line. Here at BigLife, we sure do love ourselves some alpine ski racing. That’s why we want to let you know about two NorAm Cup events that will be happening in the Mountain West in early February.
