When UAA ski racers go to Europe, they usually go to Italy. And when they go to Italy, their destination is always a valley in Italy's Dolomite Mountains called Val di Fiemme. This is the valley where Nevio Zeni (UAA Ski Team 2012) comes from. It's the valley where Lasse Moelgaard-Nielsen competed in the World Championships last winter. It's where Patricia, Marine and Lukas spent the middle part of this December at the World University Games. It's where Davis goes on vacation any time he travels to Europe. And now Mackenzie will travel to Val di Fiemme for the U23 World Championships at the end of January. So if Mackenzie needs any information about the competition venue and surroundings, she can ask just about anybody associated with the UAA Ski Team to get her answers.
