SVSEFís Tanner Farrow added to U.S. Ski Team

Sun Valley Ski Education Foundationís Tanner Farrow was chosen to ski on the U.S. Ski Teamís Alpine D Team

As an eight-year-old in 2001, Tanner Farrow joined the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation's Cross Country Development Team at Lake Creek.

Nordic's loss was alpine's gain as a year later he switched to the SVSEF's Alpine C Team, and the rest, they say, is history.

The 18-year-old Farrow, a member of the SVSEF Gold Team, was named to the U.S. Ski Team's Alpine D Team Saturday at a ceremony in Vail, Colorado. Farrow is one of eight men and 10 women to earn a berth on the squad.

Farrow's mother, Jill, attended the ceremony and remarked, "It was very exciting. There was a huge crowd and the men's D team was introduced first. The all got their U.S. team uniforms. It was definitely one of the most proud and surreal moments you could imagine.

SVSEF Alpine Director Ruben Macaya said, "He's a basically one of the best athletes I have ever coached, so that gives him a leg up on anyone else. His focus and determination are way above average, and having grown up on Baldy is a fifth coach."

Farrow's first races representing the U.S. team are likely to be in two weeks at Copper Mountain, Colorado, according to Jill.

The state of Idaho boasts four racers on the team, including Sun Valley native Hailey Duke (women's B), Middleton's Steve Fisher (men's B), and Eagle's Scott Snow (men's D).
