Local ski rep signs Mancuso Todd Rash of Marker Volkl went to Austria to court the three-time Olympic medalist By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Julia Mancuso, three-time Olympic medalist and cousin to local big mountain ripper Claudia Bouvier, will hop on Marker Volkl for the 2011 World Championship season thanks in part to the expertise and salesmanship of Edwards local Todd Rash. At ski testing session in Reiteralm, Austria this spring, Mancuso was courted by virtually all the big ski companies like Head, Atomic and Rossignol, which she raced on most of her career. “Her being a multi medalist and force on the


U.S. Ski Team is going to be a huge plus for us,” Rash said. “Our new technology is called Speed Wall. Basically the sidewall of the ski is made out of base material, so when the ski is tipped on edge they’re running on a faster surface. That, plus the service and professionalism of the test, is really what sold her.” The 26-year-old is known for her passion for ski racing, her zest for life and for being an underwear entrepreneur when she’s not collecting Olympic medals. “From day to day and week to week, she kept hitting it hard and overall we went over the data and she was fastest on our stuff and the money [See MANCUSO, page 18]

Israel ready to negotiate a Palestinian state

Israel is ready to negotiate the terms of Palestinian statehood, although it wants its security concerns addressed in the initial stages of indirect talks, the Israeli president said Friday after meeting with the U.S. Mideast envoy. George Mitchell, who is President Barack Obama’s special representative for Mideast peace, is in the region for the start of four months of indirect talks between the Israelis and Palestinians that aim to bridge vast differences between the sides on the contours of a future Palestinian state.

New classic Italian in Eagle

John Shipp opens latest addition to ‘family of restaurants’ By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Luigi’s in Eagle opened its doors Thursday night and will be in full swing this weekend. “It’s classic Italian cuisine with individual options as well as an entire entrée and pasta section that is familystyle, designed to share,” said owner John Shipp. “Italian food is my favorite, so I’ve been cooking it a long time, from the classic spaghetti and meatballs and sausage rigatoni to penne Gorgonzola, and chicken parme’

is our No. 1 seller.” The original Luigi’s has been a favorite in Keystone for years and is a part of a family of restaurants owned by John Shipp, including the Dusty Boot Steakhouses in Eagle and Beaver Creek. Luigi’s entire staff and Shipp live in the neighborhood. It’s a locally owned and operated “family company,” he said. The new pasta joint will introduce an age-old dining concept to Eagle of the “community table,” which will serve family-style portions to larger parties and bring

Healing, but with steep bills Local Good Samaritan smashed by semi needs help

Vail Mountaineer


White mice belong in laboratories not in lavatories

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Manuel Pineda may be the Best Samaritan. The Eagle County local was hammered by a semi truck in a blinding snowstorm after helping another motorist; he thought he was dead. He was almost right. Pineda, 24, was hit on I-70 last Wednesday. Since then, he has had 10 surgeries at Vail Valley Medical Center. More broken bones than you can count. His broken femur sticking through the skin, knee, hip, bones in his feet, shin, ankles dislocated … it’s a tally no one should have to make. Nerve damage left his family unsure if he’ll ever walk again, or if the paralysis on one side is temporary. Some people say he’s lucky. He doesn’t feel lucky. “I’m not really doing that good at all,” he said from his room at the Vail Valley Medical Center. Some of the planet’s most skilled surgeons spent almost an entire day piecing him back together, bit by bit. Police are looking for the truck that hit him, a semi with a white tractor and a white trailer. He’s looking for some help. His medical bills hit six figures and he’s still in the hospital. A brutal accident At 8 a.m., Pineda was inching through the storm along I-70 toward Eagle. He stopped to help someone whose SUV had slid off the road and was stuck. When he pulled over, he got stuck too. If that wasn’t enough, the SUV began to slide and the driver couldn’t get his seatbelt off. When they finally got him squared away, the SUV driver wanted to return the favor. As they reached Pineda’s car, he felt a huge rush of snow hit his back and turned in time to see disaster strike in the form of a white tractor-trailer rig. The truck slammed into Pineda and his car, throwing him more than 10 feet into the middle of the highway. For better or worse, he remained conscious as the truck smashed into his left side, throwing him through the air. He hit the snow-slickened concrete on his right side. “I was in the middle of I-70 and people were helping me over to the side,” Pineda said. No one saw the license plate or could identify the truck, and the driver kept going. All the horrified witnesses could tell for certain is that the tractor and trailer were both white.

Pineda will be on bed rest for the next six months and can go back to work on a limited basis after that. Until then, the family needs some help, DeJong said. It gets worse.

Ur tax dollers at werk Art is a guaranty of sanity. It says so right there on the huge objets d’ art in the Phoenix convention center. Spelling is not required to land massive piles of federal tax money. Just ask the guy who came up with the three-story tall mirror in the Phoenix convention center. In big red letters projected across the bottom it says, “Art is a guaranty of sanity.” Says it right there. In English. Just Randy like it’s the guy’s native language. Wyrick Of course it’s spelled wrong, but to dwell on the spell is to miss the entire point of this incredibly expensive, tax-support artistic endeavor. Because it’s a three-story tall mirror, it reflects everything. Therefore, it solves the conundrum about whether art imitates life, or life imitates art. And we’re certain you’ve already arrived at your personal solution without any further prodding from us. How does that make you feel? As good or better than when you change your own oil in your pickup truck? Or when the rifles in the gun rack in the back window are all shiny? The purpose of art is to make one think, to force

Road Scholar

one to feel, to coax or kick one out of one’s comfort zone. Art, then, is either anything you can get away with, or anything you can fund with a government grant. So we’ll call this bit of art, “Mirror Mirror On the Mall, Who’s the Worst Speller of Them All?” But ya gotta have art, even if you don’t spell it correctly. Guaranty, of course, is a financial agreement by which one person assumes the responsibility of assuring payment of someone else’s debt. So, perhaps the artist was having the last laugh by coaxing mountains of cash from the feds to fund Mirror Mirror, and ridding himself of credit card debt. Not only does it make financial sense, but it’s sound theology as well, since credit cards are the agents of Satan.. We happened upon Mirror Mirror just up the street in Phoenix from where a couple thousand people were waving signs and chanting a mantra designed to make them one with the television cameras. They were exercising their First Amendment right to speak out in support of people who want to enter our country illegally. And, by golly, everything written on their First Amendment-protected, privately-funded signs was spelled correctly.

American Birding Association sends response team to Gulf ABA collecting donations, providing manpower for Gulf Coast Disaster By Joshua Robinson Special to the Mountaineer The Deepwater Oil disaster is far from over, with thousands of gallons pumping into the Gulf of Mexico and risk of the slick reaching around Florida and up the East Coast, but the American Birding Association based in Colorado Springs is poised to increase preemptive relief on a wildlife population that faces the brunt of the disaster’s impact, birds. The ABA primarily represents birders, or birdwatchers, throughout North America with members in Eagle County, but the ABA will be taking up its stated mission of conservation to help preserve the bird populations of the Gulf Coast. Yesterday the ABA sent a response team to Louisiana to distribute ABA donations so far received to local organizations monitoring affected wildlife in the area. They hope to lessen the impact of the spill to the nesting and migrating populations of birds, lifeblood to the region’s bird-watching tourist industry. The area provides habitat to herons, spoonbills, other wading birds, as well as song birds and shore birds. If you remember pictures of the Exxon-Valdez disaster you’ll recall the photos of oil-soaked birds struggling to take flight, stagnant on the shore. But the impact to the bird population can unfortunately last well beyond initial contact with the oil. Fish populations can become oil-ridden in turn tainting the birds food supply, causing massive migratory shifts. Nesting grounds can be decimated leading to substantial deaths and in worse cases extinction. “We’ll be putting in place long-term monitoring efforts to determine and assess the impact to wildlife on an enduring and long-term basis,” said Robert Robinson, CEO and President of the ABA and former Eagle County resident. He is leading the initial response team

to Louisiana. Robert acknowledges that unfortunately this disaster will have long-term impacts, and he hopes to use the resources of the ABA to monitor and prevent future fall-out. The ABA birders in the Gulf area have developed bird-watching skills that will allow them to identify expiring or in distress birds. An enjoyable hobby has now become a valuable conservationist tool. The ABA as an association will be “looking for birds that show signs of oil marks, birds that are in distress, and birds whose migratory patterns seem to have been

Now playing in the Vail Valley ... Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero “Iron Man,” reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In “Iron Man 2,” the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Community Pride Cleanup today By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The big Community Pride highway cleanup was supposed to be last weekend, but a lot of good intentions were buried under a blanket of white. “Unless you can find trash under a foot of snow, you weren’t going to have much success,” laughed Melissa Macdonald, executive director of the Eagle River Watershed Council, which sponsors the annual event. So they postponed the cleanup until today, but they went ahead and had the party last Saturday at 4-Eagle Ranch. Not to despair. If you work the highway cleanup today, or if you find your way to Eagle’s cleanup day, Eagle’s Party for the Planet will welcome you and your crew with loving arms. If you’re in Eagle, meet in Eagle Ranch. If you’re working the Highway Cleanup, pick a piece of highway and get busy. Someone will find you and make sure you have orange bags and orange vests. “A lot of people are taking advantage of the good weather and were working today,” Macdonald said yesterday. The entire Vail Christian High School student body was out there yesterday, which may or may not be bet-

ter than grammar class. Some students were working a five-mile stretch near State Bridge, which isn’t quite the treasure hunt it was since the State Bridge Lodge burned down. The students will be part of a cleanup contingent that annually draws 850 souls. They walk 121 miles of highway, and last year they picked up 48,000 pounds of trash. “Normally they bring their most interesting finds to the party,” Macdonald said. So far, this year’s stuff is still pretty interesting. Someone found a safe, unopened and full of money. Marijuana made its annual appearance – and not the medical variety. A crew found a refrigerator along Highway 131 north of Wolcott. I-70 is one of the nation’s major narcotics arteries, so elements of methamphetamine usually show up. Workers are instructed to tie an orange bag to a mile marker and let the police deal with it. “You’ll have a strong sense of camaraderie and accomplishment when you see all those orange bags along the road,” said Joe Macy, Eagle River Watershed Council board vice president. “It sounds corny, but it’s fun to be part of something so big and so badly needed. Over 100 teams will cover Interstate 70 and Highways 6, 24 and 131.”

UConn’s Calhoun signs 5-year, $13M contract

Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun, coming off a year marred by health problems, an NCAA investigation and a disappointing performance on the court, signed a five-year, $13 million contract, the school announced yesterday. The Hall of Fame coach will be paid $2 million retroactive to last season and $2.3 million next season. Calhoun, who turns 68 on Monday, had been making $1.6 million under a contract that was set to expire on June 30. Calhoun expressed relief at signing the contract, which took almost a year of negotiations to complete. “We need to be moving forward,” Calhoun said at the news conference. “Any time you stand still, other folks are catching you, and matter of fact, bypassing you. We don’t want that happening at UConn.” Calhoun took a medical leave of absence in January, missing seven games with an undisclosed condition. The Huskies (18-16) lost to Virginia Tech in the second round of the NIT. Athletic Director Jeff Hathaway said there were complexities in the contract that caused the delay, but said Calhoun’s off-the-court issues played no role in the talks. Calhoun said the contract will allow him to finish his coaching career at Connecticut. But he said that doesn’t mean he plans to retire in four years, and joked that he’s been consulting Joe Paterno, Penn State’s 83-year-old football coach. Calhoun’s base salary begins at $325,000 for the season that just ended, and will go up by $25,000 each year of the agreement. In addition to the base salary, Calhoun receives almost $1.7 million for speaking engagements and media-related appearances for last season.

Golf fan Tasered, arrested at Players Championship

A 36-year-old man attending the second round of The Players Championship was subdued by a taser yesterday. Travis Parmelee, of Jacksonville, was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence, said St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Dave Messenger. Messenger said course marshals notified officers that Parmelee was yelling at players and being belligerent near the 11th hole. Officers responded and attempted to calm Parmelee down, but they said he became more combative. They tried to take Parmelee into custody, but he resisted and was Tasered once. “He was at the point where it was time for law enforcement to step in,” Messenger said. “Our goal is to escort people off the property, but it was clear he wasn’t going to go with us.”

Parmelee pulled away as officers tried to put him into a golf cart, Messenger said, prompting one to touch him with a stun gun. Messenger said it was clear Parmelee had been drinking. “Most people really want to watch golf, and others came out here to drink,” Messenger said. The PGA Tour said in a statement that its position “has always been that anything that disrupts the competition or the enjoyment of our fans will be dealt with accordingly, as was the case today.” The arrest came four days after a Philadelphia Police officer used a stun gun on a teenager dashing through the outfield during a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park. It also followed an odd incident Thursday night at TPC Sawgrass. Course superintendent Tom Vlach found a car parked on the par-3 No. 8 shortly after dark. According to a report filed by the Sheriff’s Office, Vlach found William John Rinaldi and Brianna Lynn Borelli inside the car with the engine running. Rinaldi refused to turn the motor off and get out of the car, so Vlach called 911. Officers responded and found no damage to the green. Vlach declined to press charges as long as the two were issued a trespass warning. “That was a strange one,” Messenger said.

St. Johns Sheriff’s Deputies cuff and pick up Travis Parmelee, of Jacksonville who was tasered by the deputies after repeated requests for him to calm down while in the area behind the 11th hole at The Players Championship golf tournament in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Friday, May 7, 2010. Parmelle had been allegedly yelling and heckling at fans and golfers. Parmelle was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence for the incident.

Glenwood Canyon Bike Path open for season Late spring snow or high water could temporarily close sections of the path The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) opened the final section of the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path for the season Wednesday. CDOT had opened the path on April 20, but kept the section between the Shoshone Power Plant and the Hanging Lake Rest Area closed until it was no longer impacted by work or equipment on the I-70 rockfall repair project underway. Rockfall repair contractor Flatiron Construction was able to clear this section for reopening sooner than anticipated (the repairs are scheduled for completion in mid-May), and CDOT Maintenance crews swept

the path to get this section opened back up before the weekend. The path is now fully open from Glenwood Springs at mile marker 116.8 to mile marker 131, on the east end of Glenwood Canyon, CDOT says. CDOT closes the Glenwood Canyon Bike Path each winter, when winter maintenance activities on I-70 above can create unsafe conditions on the path. CDOT says it may be necessary for them to close the path again for the safety of users, depending upon late spring snow and/or high water.

The Palestinians want the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem — territories Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast War — for their state, but have said they are willing to make some minor land exchanges. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a reluctant latecomer to the idea of Palestinian statehood, has said he won’t give up east Jerusalem and has posed strict security conditions, including a continued Israeli presence in some areas of the West Bank. Israeli President Shimon Peres, who fills a largely ceremonial role, said the Jewish state is ready to negotiate.

Inconclusive election leads to Prime-Ministerial bargaining

Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his Conservative challenger David Cameron each made their case Friday for a coalition with the party that finished third in Britain’s elections, hoping to secure the balance of power following an inconclusive vote. The Conservatives, who won the largest number of seats in Thursday’s contest, suggested that lawmakers from the third-place Liberal Democrats could serve as ministers in a future Tory government. But they held back from promising the far-reaching electoral reform the Liberal Democrats have demanded. Brown, whose left-leaning Labour Party lost more than 90 seats is fighting to cling to power, promising to back the Liberal Democrats on reform and opening negotiations with Britain’s smaller, Scottish and Welsh nationalist parties,

Water bottles and books are not bombs

The bomb squad of the New York Police Department says a suspicious cooler in Times Square is not a threat. Police found water bottles and books in the green, soft-sided cooler at the edge of a pedestrian mall in Times Square. They opened streets to traffic about an hour after investigating. Police called in the bomb squad and cordoned off streets with yellow police tape after the package was found on the sidewalk. No evacuations were ordered from buildings, but workers were told to stay indoors as the police responded. The cooler was found about a block from where a smoking SUV and a failed car bomb was found over the weekend.

Money currier sought in botched NYC bombing

Investigators of the failed car bombing in Times Square are looking for a money courier they say helped funnel cash from overseas to finance a Pakistani-American’s preparations to blow up the crude gasoline-andpropane bomb in the heart of New York, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Investigators have the name of the courier they believe helped Faisal Shahzad pay for the used SUV and other materials to rig up a car bomb that would have caused a huge fireball in Times Square if it had gone

off, the official told the AP. The official didn’t know how much money may have changed hands. U.S. law enforcement officials traveled to Pakistan — where Shahzad spent five months before returning to the U.S. in February — to question four alleged members of an al-Qaida-linked militant group. Officials are trying to establish whether Shahzad had connections to foreign terrorist groups that either funded or helped in the botched bombing that shut down Times Square.

New job creation increases unemployment

The economy got what it needed in April: A burst of hiring that added a net 290,000 jobs, the biggest monthly total in four years. The improving picture caused so many more people to pour into the labor force in search of employment that the jobless rate rose from 9.7 percent to 9.9 percent. The hiring last month of 66,000 temporary government workers to conduct the census added to overall job creation. But private employers — the backbone of the economy — contributed the most: A surprisingly strong 231,000 jobs, the most since March 2006, the Labor Department said Friday. The new jobs, generated by sectors across the economy, are the first sign that the recovery is adding significant numbers of new jobs — even if not enough to absorb the influx of jobseekers. That’s why the unemployment rate rose.

Germany calls for tighter financial regulations

Amid ruthless financial turmoil, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged European leaders to sharpen the core rules underpinning the euro to avoid debt crises like the one which has pushed Greece to the brink of bankruptcy and threatened other fragile eurozone nations. “We must sharpen the edge” of the rules to keep wayward governments in line, Merkel said, adding the 16 eurozone leaders should also consider changes to the 1992 treaty that laid the groundwork for the shared currency. “Otherwise, it won’t work, in my opinion.” The euro has rules to stop governments from undermining it with reckless spending, limiting deficits to 3 percent of gross domestic product. Those rules were shown to lack teeth when even big countries such as Germany and France broke them without serious consequences.

Greece bailout finalized

The 16 leaders of the euro zone meet in Brussels Friday to finalize the Greek rescue plan and assess how such financial crises can be avoided in the future. In Berlin, Germany’s parliament will vote on its contribution to the loan package. Greek lawmakers approved drastic austerity cuts Thursday needed to secure international rescue loans worth €110 billion ($140 billion). Clashes briefly erupted in Athens in the streets outside parliament, forcing police to use tear gas. In New York, the Dow Jones industrials plunged 1,000 points in less than half an hour on fears that

Food stamps reach a record high

Nearly 40 million Americans received food stamps -the latest in an ever-higher string of record enrollment that dates from December 2008 and the U.S. recession, according to a government update cited by Reuters. Food stamps are the primary federal anti-hunger program, helping poor people buy food, reports Reuters. Enrollment is reportedly highest during times of economic distress. The jobless rate was 9.9 percent, the government reportedly said on Friday. The Agriculture Department reportedly said 39.68 million people, or 1 in 8 Americans, were enrolled for food stamps during February, an increase of 260,000 from January. USDA updated its figures on Wednesday. “This is the highest share of the U.S. population on SNAP/food stamps,” the anti-hunger group Food Research and Action Center said in the Reuters report, using the new name for food stamps, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). “Research suggests that one in three eligible people are not receiving ... benefits.”

Placing a building on the ‘head of a pin’

Underwater robots positioned a giant 100-ton concrete-and-steel box over a blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico on Friday as workers prepared to drop the device to the seafloor in a first-of-its-kind attempt to stop oil gushing into the sea. A spokesman for oil giant BP LPC, which is in charge of the cleanup, said the box was suspended over the main leak just after noon EDT Friday and was being moved into position. Several undersea cameras attached to the robots were making sure it was properly aligned before it plunged all the way to the bottom. “We are essentially taking a four-story building and lowering it 5,000 feet and setting it on the head of a pin,” Bill Salvin, the BP spokesman, told The Associated Press.

Tennessee cleanup a dirty job

Dumpsters dot the Cottonwood subdivision with ductwork, insulation, mattresses and kitchen sinks piled in front of houses. The sound of hammers ripping up sodden floors and fans set at high hum through the air.Yet the fetid smell filling the neighborhood hits the hardest. Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry flooded along with parts of the downtown, has been the focus since weekend storms killed at least 30 people in three states, 20 of them in Tennessee. But the record-shattering torrential rains that pushed the Cumberland River out of its banks to flood the tourist spots also pushed the rivers and creeks throughout Middle and West Tennessee to levels not seen in decades, if ever.

Greyhound passenger had no bomb... or shirt No explosives were found on a Greyhound bus after a daylong bomb scare and standoff that ended peacefully, police said Friday. David Rabitor, a police dispatcher, said early Friday that the bus had been taken from the scene, and that all nearby roads and buildings were reopened. The bus wasn’t impounded. The odyssey involving the Maineto-New York bus began Thursday around 11:15 a.m. with a 911 call about a man on a bus with a bomb, police said. Authorities evacuated buildings and streets and called the bus passengers out, but one man refused to leave. The man, wearing camouflage pants without a shirt, stepped off the bus with his hands high over his head at 8:45 p.m., after hours of negotiations. He then went to his knees before soon getting up and appearing to follow orders from police to walk away from the bus.

Teenage Coloradoan may have murdered in his sleep

A psychiatrist testified that a Colorado teen was sleepwalking when he allegedly shot and killed his 9-yearold brother and wounded and stabbed his mother. Dr. John Hardy gave his testimony at an ongoing hearing to decide if Daniel Gudino, 14, of Colorado Springs will become one of the youngest people in the state to be charged as an adult with second-degree murder. Authorities say Gudino told police he shot his brother and mother in 2009 and later added in a recorded statement, “I was hoping it was just a nightmare.” In the weeklong hearing that began Monday, Hardy testified that Daniel Gudino was sleepwalking when the shooting occurred. Hardy said Gudino has parasomnia and thought he was shooting at ghosts. Hardy interviewed the boy twice and does not believe he had sufficient criminal intent to support murder charges. “If somebody is in a narcoleptic sleepwalking mode, as rare as that might be, they’re not conscious, even though they can do some fairly complex behavior,” Hardy said.

TV can harm the brain

An Snellville, Georgia man is behind bars after marijuana was found growing in his TV, reports the Atlanta Constitution Journal. Gwinnett County Sheriff’s deputies found the marijuana and the TV while evicting Warren English from his home Wednesday, reports the ACG. Six marijuana plants were found growing from the back of a hollowed out big screen TV, police reportedly said. English and his family, which includes two kids under 6 years old, were evicted from a home on Wethersfield Road, reports the ACG. English faces a charge of manufacturing marijuana and is being held at the the Gwinnett County Jail on a $10,000 bond. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

refusing to pay his medical bills because he was not in his car when the truck hit him. Because the driver fled the scene, Pineda is being held personally responsible for the medical bills. They’re projected to be more than $100,000. They need everything: legal help, physical therapy, transportation to and from the hospital because their car was smashed up when the semi hit it and Manuel.

Manuel was critically injured when a semi-truck hit him while he was helping another motorist during last week’s storms.

was right, so it all worked out,” Rash said. “Jules,” as her friends call her, is among the most successful women in alpine skiing. Mancuso has a history of peaking in big events, winning two silver medals in the Downhill and Super Combined at the recent Vancouver Olympics. Her trophy case also includes an Olympic gold medal from Torino, four World Cup victories and three World Championships medals – one silver, two bronze. “I used Völkl skis when I was a kid, so this change is somewhat of a homecoming for me. I am focused on using the new equipment to open up a new and even more successful chapter in my skiing career. The new equipment complements my skiing style, and I am already feeling like I am part of the Marker Völkl family,” Mancuso says. Rash said, while Mancuso is under a two-year contract, he’s looking at the long-term goals for Mancuso through the next two World Championships and the Olympics in 2014.
