Remarkably, Buddy accomplished this at the age of 22. Buddy went on to join the 1956 Winter Olympic Team. Over the years he competed, he carved out distinguished an award-winning skiing career. His impressive feats on the slopes earned him a well-deserved induction into the National Ski Hall of Fame.
