Paralympic Skier Ricci Kilgore-Ailes

Listen
AIR DATE: March 15, 2010

Ricci Kilgore was 19 and aiming for the Summer Olympics in pole vault, when a car accident crushed that dream. But that didn't stop Ricci. She's now heading to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Paralympics, and she's got a new dream: gold on the ski slopes. We talk to the Reno native about speeding down a mountain on one ski, and about her side hobbies: kayaking, horse-riding and playing with fire.
Guest:
Ricci Kilgore-Ailes, alpine skier, U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing National Team
