“The Mount Cain kids represented us very well and even came home with a gold medal,” said Wolf Pack Coach Chris Lindsay, who organized and attended the trip along with coaches Christian Tutors, Jake Coulbourne, and Conner Scott.

The Mount Cain Board of Directors donated $400 towards the coaches lodging so that the four couches could attend and make the trip a reality for the Wolf Pack skiers.
