Let's mix up #winterwednesday just a bit. To celebrate both the arrival of the @usskiteam's first nordic waxing truck and @gonnf's Drive for 25, I'll repost this "ad." It's the first shot I ever took at a WC – 2011 in Sjusj√łen, Norway. The tech is Oleg Ragilo, one of the team's incredible wax magicians. At the time, I was struck by how much the @usskiteam situation was just like the Maine Class C State Champs — one person, one bench out in the snow and a bunch of athletes saying "I need just a tiiiiiiny bit more kick." Thanks to the efforts of people like @liz_arky and others, the team's circumstances have changed, but the sentiment has not. And if you haven't made your D25 donation this year, now is a good time. * * #winterwednesday #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 @pyeongchang2018 #nikon #only72moresleeps #passionisnoordinaryword
