U.S. Alpine skier Caroline Lalive, who is a two-time Olympian and won five World Cups, is retiring from competitive racing after 13 seasons.  Lalive is from Steamboat Springs, and missed multiple seasons due to injury, including the 2006 Olympics and the complete 2007 and 2008 seasons.  She was trying to make a comeback in 2009, but suffered another knee injury, which was her 19th ski injury during her career.  However, even with all of her injury struggles, Lalive still leaves with a good feeling about the sport: “The amazing thing is that despite all the injuries, I never lost my love of skiing.”
