ASHLAND—After a 2018 ski season spent 3.5 hours away at Mt. Bachelor, southern Oregon’s high school ski teams have benefitted from a snow-filled 2019.

A group of more than 50 is finally getting to flex its ski muscles on its home Mt. Ashland.

"We are very proud of having this mountain,” head coach Gary King said. “Mt. Ashland is known as being very steep and challenging so for ski racing, it makes our kids better faster."

NewsWatch 12’s Jake Garcia takes us through a day of practice with some of the most talented skiers in the valley.
