All hail “Queen Jean” Palmer. She said she hasn’t been able to ski as much as she’d like these past few years, but with retirement in sight she gets a gleam in her eye as she envisions the days ahead when she’ll have all the time in the world to enjoy the sport and mountain that brought, and kept her here in the first place.
