Michael Ward, front, and Erik Lynch, second, of the National Training Group, lead a pack of Steamboat Springs Nordic combined skiers on Wednesday. The U.S. Nordic combined Ski Team is leading an effort to raise money to support athletes like Ward and Lynch, who are near the top of the sport but not close enough to receive much support from the U.S. Ski Team.
