Much like the ski and snowboard industry’s constantly changing camber and shape variations, mountain biking has undergone a similar shift. Fat bikes, with monster tires good for ripping through more aggressive terrain, are becoming more commonplace. Ellicottville and western New York have a pretty strong mountain bike community fueled by passion, people and associations like WNYMBA (Western New York Mountain Bike Association).

Event organizer Suzanne DiMico encourages everyone to “Shred the Stigma of Addiction,” which is this year’s theme, by raising money and awareness to help adolescents and their families get on the road to recovery.

Inspired by a love for her country and for high speed turns, Kaylie Buck is racing towards her future. The former HoliMont Snowboard Team member has been competing on the NorAm Circuit for Team Canada, and this season, she is producing podium results!

Like many teenagers, Kaylie Buck’s life is a complex juggling act of commitments to keep and schedules to adhere by.  Dig deeper though and you’ll soon find that unlike most teenagers, the sixteen-year-old Kaylie has national pride and Olympic aspirations on her mind every morning when she wakes up; so it goes without saying that Ms. Buck doesn’t exactly live the average teenage life.

While you were enjoying summer in the States, this former HoliMont Snowboard Team racer was chasing winter in Chile, in preparation for the World Cup circuit / 2018 Olympics

Last winter, SNOWED-IN introduced you to a zealous young woman named Megan Farrell, whose Olympic aspirations in the field of alpine snowboard racing were taking her in a direction that most people in their early twenties never even set their sights on.  Four-time Olympic Gold medalist Jesse Owens once said, “We all have dreams.  But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.”

If you’re a Member at HoliMont (North America’s largest private ski club), you know that it is an experience that can be tough to put into words because it really is just that – an incredible winter experience. Any time throughout the season you can hit the slopes and set your skis on edge to engage your finely tuned, high performance skis or snowboard on pristinely groomed corduroy and carve down one of HoliMont’s 52 slopes. But as with most things in life, picturing it doesn’t do it justice. Until you can actually feel that crisp Western New York winter air on your face as you cruise down a slope, all you can really do is imagine what spending your winters at this family-friendly ski club is all about.

This is going to be a great winter. Farmers, weathermen, Mother Nature and the magic 8 ball all agree that we’re going to see better snowfall this season.

Just twenty-three years old, an age where most young people are just a couple years into the job force or pursuing higher education, Megan Farrell’s Olympic dreams currently consume her everyday life. A graduate of Queen’s University with a degree in Environmental Science, Megan has put typical career aspirations on hold in order to work out, train, travel, and hone her snowboarding skills. It’s not an easy lifestyle by any means. But true commitment is rarely easy.

Take a moment to be completely honest with yourself, and then answer these two questions: How do you define commitment?  And how old were you when you first realized what true commitment was?
