No mountains no problem for Orono top skier Bradford Morrison

  • Updated: January 7, 2014 - 6:12 PM

A week and change into January and Bradford Morrison, one of the state’s best slalom skiers, has yet to ski in a race.

– have conspired to keep Morrison sidelined, but his return is imminent and his timing could scarcely be better.

Morrison’s debut will come Friday at the Buck Hill Invitational in Burnsville. His return, combined with the presence of teammates Mac Bendixon and Jackson Zilverberg, make the Spartans a team to be reckoned with.

Staff writer Jim Paulsen spoke with Morrison about skiing in Minnesota and his plans for the rest of the season.

 

Q: How are you feeling now?

A: I lost about 15 pounds so I haven’t been in the best of shape, but I’ve caught up pretty quickly.

 

Q: What’s your biggest concern?

A: It’s probably the mental part of the skiing. In skiing, one mistake does matter a lot.

 

Q: When did you start skiing?

A: Since I was about 5 years old. It’s my number one sport. I ski on a club team and my high school team. It take up most of my time.

 

Q: What club?

A: The Buck Hill Ski Club. I’ve been on the club for about eight years. It’s really helped in building my racing ability. The coach staff there are people with Olympic and World Cup experience. They’re really good.

 

Q: When you ski outside of Minnesota, do you take any grief for coming from a place with no real mountains?
