Olympians rally for local ski hill

Listen to this story
Many of the nation's top alpine skiers, including more than a dozen Olympians, are in the North Country to compete in the 2010 U.S. Alpine Championships at Whiteface Mountain, which got underway Saturday and continue today.

The roster of athletes includes Julia Mancuso, who won two silver medals at the Vancouver Winter Games, and 2006 Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety. But before they took to the slopes of Whiteface, a half-dozen members of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team visited Mount Pisgah, a small ski hill run by the Village of Saranac Lake, to ski with area kids and help raise funds for a new lift at the ski center.
