Perhaps best known for winning two silver medals in skiing at the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley (the first American to win a medal in Dowhhill), Penny has taken her European ski racing experience and successfully run ski and hiking trips to the Alps for over thirty eight years. Her knowledge of the mountains, the people, and the countries combined with her ability to speak German and French fluently make for great trips - well organized, educational and fun. Penny personally escorts each trip, but gauges the abilities of the individuals when deciding daily adventures. Having achieved over 75% repeat business consistently on each trip over the years, Penny must be doing something right! Come join her on a skiing or hiking adventure!
