Audio Slide Show: Alpine skiers — ‘Race like you train, and train like you race’

How would two students from such far-flung locales as Utah and Australia wind up as teammates on Bates College’s nationally recognized ski teams?

Photographer and videographer Michael Bradley produced this audio slide show featuring Avril Dunleavy ’15, of Salt Lake City, and Emily Bamford ’15, of East Melbourne, Australia, talking about life as an alpine skier at Bates in the lead-up to the NCAA Skiing East Regional Championships, hosted by the Bobcats on Feb. 22-23, 2013, at Sunday River in Newry, Maine.

Dunleavy is one of four Bates skiers competing at the NCAA National Collegiate Skiing Championships March 6-9 in Middlebury, Vt.
