You don’t need to look much fur­ther for in­spi­ra­tion than this great shot of Idaho’s Charley French at the re­cent Mas­ters World Cup 2018 in Min­neapo­lis, Minn. French, at 92 years, is still kick­ing and glid­ing with the best, and was the old­est com­peti­tor at the Cham­pi­onships, even prompt­ing the World Mas­ters As­so­ci­a­tion (WMA) to change its rules so that 90+-aged skiers had their own race cat­e­gory. With our trib­ute to Chummy Broomhall, fea­tures on the Ice­land Loppet and North Lake Tahoe, along with his­toric Tour de Ski, plus much more in this is­sue, you can even bank some in­spi­ra­tion for a rainy day. Bravo to all the skiers on ev­ery start line and to those who took home medals. As the WMA pres­i­dent, J.D. Down­ing, says in his “Mas­ters” col­umn in­side, we all need to “make it hap­pen.” En­joy the off-sea­son. – BAS
