From Wardance to Sochi; Julia Ford nominated to US Olympic Team

Sochi 2014On January 26th, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association  nominated 20 athletes to the U.S. Olympic Alpine Ski Team to compete in Sochi next month.

The team includes a venerable list of previous Olympic gold medalists, a recent World Champion and Okemo’s own Julia Ford.

Julia’s prowess on the ski hill is matched by tremendous character and personality.   Those  who know her well would agree, she exemplifies best in class.  Her nomination to the US Olympic team is a fitting capstone to VARA’s Excellence Weekend.

Over recent weeks, Julia and her teammates endured a challenging schedule, with cancelled  / added races leading up to the conclusion of the Olympic team evaluation process.

Julia’s mom, Lori served as a mainstay of Okemo’s Council Team for years. Her aunt, Wendy, headed OMS.  Julia’s brother and two sisters, all former Okemo racers,  also posted strong achievements.  We wish Julia and the entire Ford family best wishes in this mark of excellence.  Stay tuned for updates in short order.  In the meanwhile, please visit;
