It’s that time of year when ski racers are taking off for summer training. Planes are filled with ski bags, oversized backpacks and ski boots to the confusion of fellow travelers. “Where are you going skiing this time of year?” they often ask. For the last few months, athletes have been enjoying snow in Oregon and California while other groups jet set around the Northern Hemisphere to glaciers in Europe.

Stratton Mountain School athletes flew across the country to Mt. Hood, Ore.
