A few members of the Sunlight Ski Team offer some thoughts on Alice McKennis

New Castle Olympian Alice McKennis got her start at Sunlight Mountain Resort. Here’s what Sunlight Ski Team members think of her Olympic journey:

“I think it’s just that it makes us feel like there’s so many more bigger mountains people know more about. It helps us be known more. It’s just so nice.”

“That’s really cool. I think it inspires people that race at Sunlight, so they know that someone from Sunlight made it to the U.S. Olympic team.”

“It shows that no matter how small our mountain is, we still bring out good racers just like Aspen and Vail.”

“She’s good. I’d like to be her. Olympics … nice. It’s kind of cool because we can do the same thing. She grew up learning here, so we can grow up learning here and go the Olympics, too. It would be kind of cool to be her.”
