    Thumbs up Behind the Gates

    I am glad the recent Nastar newletter had a link to the four part series now posted on this website of the "Behind the Gates" program about last year's National Championships. I have DirecTV so I was not able to watch it on Universal Sports when it aired in December.

    The show was great! I really enjoyed watching all four parts. The producers did a good job portraying the excitement of the Nationals and how important it is for the kids in particular, the Olympians of tomorrow.

    I'd highly recommend that everyone take a look on the website.

    Thanks for posting that Judy! I wasn't able to watch the show when it first aired. I'll "tune in" tonight.

    Here's a direct link to the show. There is a button which will allow you to watch in full screen.

    It really makes you want to go back to Nationals, eh? Well I am in the silver division now but one more gold day at my home resort and I am stuck at the very bottom of the gold division and will not go to Nationals in that division again. If I only race at other resorts I might stay silver. I know my home hill too well and will end up with one very high handicap gold again there I am sure before the season is out and that is all I need to move from the a silver national ranking to gold. Too bad.

    But the show certainly plants the desire to be part of the Nationals again.....hope I stay in the silver division and go again. But I am not optimistic......

    Hello everyone! I need help finding links to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th installments of the Behind the Gates video. I found the link once on the web page, but now it eludes me. Thanks so much. Hope everyone is having a great season so far. Jim

    I don't think those installments have been posted yet.

    Eurika! I found them! On the National Championship page, watch the :31 second spot. After it is done "related videos" will be tagged on the bottom of the screen. Vols. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Great inspiration (and a pretty good diversion from the desk). Enjoy. Jim
