It would be McPhie's second Olympics - she placed 18th in Vancouver in 2010. This year's team will be picked in January.

"It's less than one minute of your life, and you've trained so hard for it."

McPhie is back in Bozeman for the holidays after competing in a World Cup event in Finland. The 29-year-old took time out from her training to speak with News Director Sally Mauk about her skiing career. It's a sport that's in her blood - beginning with her great grandfather.
