    Hi Steve, first let me say thanks for taking the time out of your schedule to come here and answer some questions.

    I have a question, on what to do now in terms of getting more into challening races outside of NASTAR. I'm 23, didn't really start racing till 4 years ago, and am in love with it. I've had a huge performance gain this year, starting out silver, getting a couple golds, and kinda being in the middle, to now having two platinums my last 2 races, with my best handicap being a 4.98 (one of which isn't posted yet) Basicaly, my skiing has improved dramaticaly this year alone, and honeslty i'm left a lil empty, not so much in the skiing department, but kinda getting bored with the short NASTAR courses. I'm self-coached, so I have really no idea where to go at this point? Masters league? Don't most resort teams consist of younger children? I really have been excited by my development, and I'd love to see just how far I can go. I love skiing, and I love racing, but it kinda seems like i'm 10 years too late to do anything worthwhile with it. Suggestions?

    Happy for your progression. Yes, skiing is generally fostered at a younger age, but there are college programs available that could potentially get you into some better and more challenging races. I would suggest checking out what is available at local campuses. They generally offer good training regimens and circuits to test out your skills.
