Dudley, a 12 year old PVNT skier, has been skiing for years but just last season decided to try racing. We talk a lot about how racing is not our only focus and I think Dudley is the perfect example of that.  I remember asking him at practice if he wanted to race at the upcoming Plain Washington Nordic Cup and he said, “Nope, I’m going to ride my snowmobile instead.”  Last fall, I asked Dudley if he thought he would try racing in the winter and to my surprise, he said that he would like to.  It has been a pleasure to watch Dudley step out of his comfort zone, challenge himself, overcome that challenge and be ready for the next challenge, whether that be adventure skiing, skier-cross jumps or a nordic race.

The group’s energy often functions around his presence. This year has been a bit different. Peter went through difficult challenges, and his absence was hard felt. Read more
