A large group of current Burke Mountain Academy student athletes attended the  U.S. Ski Team’s naming ceremony at Copper Mountain, Colorado. They were there to cheer on the eight BMA alumni being named to the team that day and remember alumnus Ronnie Berlack ’12. They also snapped these photos of the event.  Congratulations to Burkies Mikaela Shiffrin ’13, Nina O’ Brien ’15, Tommy Biesemeyer ’08, Nolan Kasper ’07, Kieffer Christianson ’10, Hig Roberts ’10, Patrick Kenney ’15 and Griffin Brown ’13 on being named to the 2015-16 U.S. Alpine  Ski Team.
