A total of six members of the United States Ski Team started at Bristol Mountain, and Bristol's freestyle coach Johnny Kroetz says those with dreams of Olympic Gold can start their journey just a short drive from Rochester.

"You don't need to be from Valle, Colorado or from the Cascades or Green Mountains to become an Olympian or a US Ski Team member," he says, "If you've got hard work and dedication, and you really try hard, you can be whatever you want to be, no matter what the sport. In our case that happens to be Freestyle Skiing."
