Colin Rogers began skiing in the Bill Koch Youth Ski League in Northwestern Vermont, and the highlight of his young ski career was getting a lollipop every time he crossed the finish line. He continued his training at Middlebury College from 2000-2004, graduating with a degree in Environmental Geology. “I knew I wanted to go to college,” Rogers says, “so it was not a hard decision to make.” In 2004 Rogers placed 5th in the...
