Vietze is ranked second in the nation (for his age) in the slalom and third in downhill, while Ginnis is ranked first in the nation (for his age) in the slalom. McLaughlin is ranked second in the nation (for his age) in three disciplines.
Current GMVS student Charlie Raposo '14 has also been nominated to the British U-18 national alpine ski team for this year, and he is ranked third in the world (for his age) in the giant slalom.
