Just before leaving for the Squaw Valley World Cup series where she swept the wins at both the slalom and giant slalom, Mikaela Shiffrin (Eagle-Vail, CO) spent a couple days spring skiing with the kids of Ski & Snowboard Club Vail. Not only did she get great training in at an elite venue, she had the opportunity to inspire young athletes to reach for the medals, just like she has done. Plus, the director of the club is her former coach at Burke Mountain Academy.
