A wonderful article entitled “Becoming Mikaela” by former Ford Sayre ski mom, Meg Lukens Noonan, takes us back to 2003 when “an all-business 8-year-old named Mikaela Shiffrin joined a New Hampshire ski club… and coaches and parents knew they were witnessing something special.” A number of references to the Ford Sayre Ski Club and Dartmouth Skiway give a sense of what it’s like to grow up near a northern New England ski hill.
