Tom Ross: As many as 30 girls ski jumping with Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club this winter

With about 30 girls already honing their ski jumping skills in the Winter Sports Club’s Nordic combined program, it seems inevitable that one of the little girls at play Friday on Howelsen Hill someday will find a special place in Steamboat’s Olympic history.

Thank you all who stopped by and bought some baked goods. This event was for the Rocky Mountain Division Nordic Combined Junior Nationals competition. 12 athletes qualified to participate in this event with the best of the best Nordic Combined Athletes ages 19 and under in the United States. I am a proud mama as my son Peter Rosenthal will be 1 of the 12 going to Anchorage Alaska this February. Steamboat is great about supporting their Athletes. Once again, thanks for your support.
