This winter will see the launch of the Bromley Baseboard at a few select skiresorts. Under development for the last four years, it's fascinating just how methodical, considered and patient the development and launch process has been. What it isn't is at all surprising. Consider the skeleton event itself; what the public sees is 90 seconds or so of action per run. What they don't see is the four years of preparation on the track, in the gym, the hours on the road, the time developing the equipment and in general the devotion to a way of life alien to most people.
