Each issue of SeniorsSkiing.com has a picture to help test your skiing knowledge. Generally, the pictures are from collections in a variety of participating ski museums, which we encourage readers to visit.

Last issue’s challenge was to identify the woman in this picture. She is the only female skier to win three Olympic golds in alpine in a single Olympics (2002). Roger Evans was the first reader to name Janica Kostelic of Croatia. She also is the first woman to win four golds in alpine at the Olympics. She retired in 2007. Asked about ski racing, she said, “It’s just a race. Just like every other one. You have some good days and some bad days.” Ain’t that the truth.

Test Your Skiing Knowledge (or some version of it) will resume in the Fall.
