Thanks to Skins, Michael attended the NSW Snowsports Cross-Country (NSWSXC)
Awards in Jindabyne the weekend after he returned from Beijing.
He spoke briefly while members of the NSWSXC squad listened intently,
according to the organisation's Race Secretary, Toni Hulme.
'It was so great to have Michael there. He did a fantastic job, told some
wonderful stories and our young skiers were all very excited and impressed.
'Having someone of Michael's skiing background present their awards is very
inspirational,' said Toni.
