Glenwood Springs resident Alice McKennis is having a great spring. The professional ski racer and twenty-five-year old won a national title at the US Alpine Championships in March. She took first in the Super Giant Slalom. It was a strong finish to what she calls a good season. McKennis talks with Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher about what it was like earning first place, after a long road to recovery following two broken legs.
