Brothers Lake and Jett Lindelof of Swanville and Islesboro recently wrapped a strong 2017-2018 ski season.

The boys, ages 14 and 12, have ski raced together on the same circuit for years; however, this winter they successfully went in individual directions.

Lake was accepted to the renowned Carrabassett Valley Academy at Sugarloaf USA and attended five months as an eighth-grade Alpine winter-term student-athlete, while Jett raced as a seventh-grade Camden Snow Bowl middle school racing team member, in Alpine and Nordic disciplines.

This season brought the siblings much skiing excitement and experience as they individually traveled to many ski areas, including Black Mountain, Kents Hill, Camden Snow Bowl, Titcomb Mountain, Lost Valley, Mount Abram, Fort Kent's Lonesome Pines Trails, Sugarloaf Mountain, Hermon Mountain, Gunstock New Hampshire and Mount Sunapee New Hampshire.

The brothers, who also are snowboarders, learned to ski and began their ski racing enthusiasm at young ages at Hermon Mountain.

The skiers already look forward to — and continue to make plans for — their 2018-2019 ski seasons.
