with Luke Bodensteiner, the Executive Vice President of Athletics at U.S. Ski and Snowboard. I’ve known Luke for over a decade, since before I was on the U.S. Ski Team. Before joining U.S. Ski and Snowboard, he cross country skied himself for the University of Utah and at the 1992 and ’94 Olympics. At Utah he won two individual NCAA titles and one team title and he is a 3-time U.S. National Champion. He joined the administration at U.S. Ski and Snowboard in 1996 and became the cross country manager in ’97. In 2001 he took control of Nordic Combined and ski jumping as well when he became the Nordic Director. He was promoted to his current position, Director of Athletics, in 2008. Luke has also authored a book, titled Endless Winter, about his time racing internationally. This was one of my favorite conversations and I hope you enjoy it as well.
