Fasterskier.com is entering its fourth winter of providing the latest ski training and racing news. We have strived to post articles of interest to young and old, elite and recreational skiers. We have posted news, updates, profiles, results, training and racing summer and winter. More than 50-60 monthly articles have become the norm even in the summer. The total number of articles that can be found in our archives after two seasons have reached several thousands! With all that said, we want to give you a chance to test you memory, recollection and knowledge from what you have acquired of â€œmust knowâ€ from reading our articles.
We will occasionally post 5-10 questions and you can see if you can answer without having to scroll down below the last question to find the answers. Most questions will be from stuff that has been mentioned in Fasterskier.com articles, but we will occasionally sneak in some â€œspecialsâ€. Enjoy and think before you look!
