    Good luck to the skiers, both at this race and throughout the year- hope they go fast and stay healthy.

    I don't know too much about the team that's returning, but it's like cross country where we are on the short list on national championship contenders.

    Anyone ever attended a collegiate skiing competition? I'm not a skier and know nothing about the sport, but having a world class team nearby is intriguing.

    Is competition skiing a quality spectator sport? Is it something that can be appreciated by non-skiers, or will I miss all the intricacies and will it just look like people going downhill really fast (like taking a native Coloradan to a NASCAR race)?

    January 25-26 the Buffs have an event in Nederland (assume Eldora) and I have nothing even penciled on my calendar for that Sunday.

    probably better if you are on the mountain. you can enjoy some runs and find some good viewing spots along the course. not really a great grandstand sport from my experience...bring your cowbell...

    I've always wanted to go but live in Atlanta, so not much of an opportunity. It sounds cool though.

    Two takeaways from yesterday. Our ladies are noticeably bigger and stronger than the field. also more international flavor than a lot of the smaller schools.
