- A well known former olympian, Bill Koch, is seen here with Andrea, Prospect's Ski Shop Manager. Bill Koch was the silver medal winner in the 30K nordic race at the Innsbruck Olympics in 1976. He is the only American ever to win an olympic medal in nordic skiing. That may change in 2010!
- Former olympian Dave Jarecki represented the United States in Albertville, France in 1992 and Lillihammer, Norway in 1994 as a member of the Nordic Biathlon Team. Here is a picture of Dave (on the left) chatting with his buddy, Dane LaRoche, a former Prospect Mtn. ski instructor. Dave was Prospect's head ski instructor and ski shop attendant in 2002 and 2003.
- Another competitor in the 1992 Olympics in France was Jim Curran, Jr. Jim competed in the 50 kilometer ski race. In the early 1980's, Jim was the Nordic Director at Prospect Mountain Ski Center.
- One of the fastest ski sprinters in the world, Andrew Newell is currently on the US Ski Team. Look for him in Vancouver in 2010! (http://andrewnewell.squarespace.com/)
