But it’s complicated. We’ll learn about the several kinds of backcountry skis and techniques — telemark, randonee, touring — what each is best for, and the most reasonable route to find your way into the sport.

Parents of three Anchorage Olympians join us in the studio. Some of them are headed to Sochi, where the winter games start Friday, so we pre-recorded the show. We’ve heard from athletes, but as a parent it is easier to identify more with the parents: with their pride, and trepidation, and with knowledge of the sacrifices made for a young person to succeed at the highest level. We’ll learn how parents produce an Olympian, and how it feels, good and bad, once you have one in the family.
