Professional snow sports athletes have started their competitive season and many are traveling from race to race. For most, the cost of competing can be as challenging as defeating their opponents. Nordic ski racer Noah Hoffman and Nordic Combined athlete Michael Ward talked about the expense during a recent visit to Aspen Public Radio. They were preparing for a fundraiser in Aspen and spoke with Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen.

Today, we look at one of three Aspen-area athletes who competes in cross country skiing. Michael Ward is one of the youngest on the US Nordic team. He’s just 20-years-old. Still, he’s hoping to beat the older competition so he can land a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.
