Keefe Gorman serves as managing director of investments for Merrill Lynch in New York. In addition to his work with Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman is an avid skier and a member of the Song Mountain Race Team.

The Song Mountain Race Team is a nonprofit organization that develops alpine ski racers. Working in conjunction with the Central New York Ski Racing Foundation, or CNYSRF, the organization prepares athletes for success by focusing on several key areas. First, it concentrates on the athletes’ physical and technical abilities to give them the stamina and skills to race. The Song Mountain Race Team also focuses on the mental side of competition, knowing that world-class athletes must prepare their minds as well.

Children between the ages of 5 and 12 can join the Racing Rabbits & Coyotes team, which places a strong emphasis on fun. This team gives children an introduction to ski racing, with 50 hours of training and the chance to participate in real timed competitions. Older children can join a more intensive racing team, which trains four days a week and competes locally and throughout the state.
