This weekend, snowboarder Chris Klug, and Starwood developer Edgar Stern are being inducted into the United States Ski and Snowboard Hall of fame. Though the actual hall is in Michigan, the ceremony is happening in Aspen - Klug’s hometown.
Aspen athlete Chris Klug knows a thing or two about participating in the Olympics. The three-time Olympic snowboard racer no longer competes but fondly remembers his time on the international stage. Klug defied the odds, earning a bronze medal in the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City after receiving a liver transplant. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen sat down with him recently to talk about what the rising stars in snowsports can expect in Sochi.
