Decker Ski With Olympic Gold Medalist

Decker Mountain is a quick side trip from the Whistler Blackcomb ski resort, and a great introduction to the Spearhead range. So it was pretty cool to reconnect with a friend from the mountain bike race days and ski some powder.

Jake Wetzel who had gotten into competitive rowing, ended up competing at the highest level. He came short with a silver medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, but he came back four years later to pull off the ultimate at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China with a gold medal in the 8 man rowing event.

Here’s a quick video of our tour!
