Let's face it. Nancy Greene was the Bee's Knees! If you were a kid into racing back then in Canada she was the pinnacle of success! Nancy set the world of ski racing on fire as far as Canada was concerned. She blew them away at the World Cup and continued to do so for ages! The League got kids across Canada into the gates ...she inspired the Crazy Canucks! To this day she is responsible for many of the developments in Canadian Skiing.
Years later I actually saw her several times when I lived in Alta Lake (Whistler) BC. That's where her home is...one of them anyways. I was ski bumming at the mountain one winter and famous residents were everywhere! How cool is that? (At this point my kids only look with blank faces...they don'k know that in my day that was like seeing 1D on a regular basis!!)
