Fasterskier.com is entering its fifth season of providing the latest ski training and racing news. We are striving to post articles of interest to young and old, elite and recreational skiers. We are posting news, updates, profiles, results, training and racing information summer and winter. We posted more than 1500 articles last season and 50-60 monthly articles have become the norm even in the summer. You can find a ton of interesting stuff among our thousands of archive articles. Just scroll to the bottom of the home page and click on â€œmore recent articlesâ€ — then select a year and the month.
With all that said, we want to no and then 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 therefore 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!
