For gold, by the Golds: Steamboat's brother-sister snowboarding duo relate their journey to the Olympics
In many ways, the rise of Steamboat Springs siblings Taylor and Arielle Gold to the U.S. Olympic half-pipe snowboarding team has been meteoric. Even just 13 months ago, neither would have been projected to make the trip to Sochi, Russia, for the Winter Olympics. Yet here they both are, cemented as two of the best riders in the United States. At the same time, nothing about their climb to the top of the snowboarding world has been quick. It’s taken years of training, incredible vision and outstanding confidence. This is that story — their journey, the highlights and the hard work — in their own words and the words of their friends, family and coaches who were there every step of the way. This is the story of the Golds, by the Golds.

Two steps into Olympian Hall, and it’s hard not to take a gander toward the ceiling. There, flags of host Olympic countries cover just about every crevasse of open space.

When the U.S. moguls team begins its quest in Sochi, Russia, it all will begin with a single name. Hannah Kearney. The Vermont native has become the Michael Jordan of her sport. Sporting pigtails through her helmet, she’s anything but Pippi Longstocking. She is hell on skis.
