Steamboat skier Max Marno makes US team
May 26, 2010
Steamboat Springs — Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Alpine skier Max Marno has been named to the U.S. Ski Team's development team.
"Making the U.S. Ski Team was a huge goal for me," the 19-year-old skier said Wednesday afternoon. "It's something that, as a skier, you are always working toward."
Marno's coach, Peter Anderson, said strong results at the end of the season, and a good showing at a selection camp that wrapped up this month at Mammoth Mountain in California, helped Marno earn a nod from the U.S. Ski Team.
Marno learned he had made the team this week by phone.
