In this Sept. 1, 2019 file photo, skier Shaun D’Alessandro of Australia skates on a ramp at The Wall on Lake Tahoe, Calif.
He’s back in town to attend the Olympics in Rio.
But D’Amato said he wants to make sure he can attend both games this season.
“I want to go to all three and be there with my family, my kids and my grandkids,” he said.
“I really hope I can go both.”
D’Avillos family includes his parents, grandparents and four great-grandchildren.
They are the ones who have been skiing with him for nearly 40 years.
D’Anellos skis at Lake Tahoes is a bit different than the ones he used to ski with his grandparents.
He used to skate with his parents at The Rock, but the slopes there are now closed.
His family is traveling to Tahoe for the Olympics and skiing will be the main focus.
“It’s kind of a new thing for us,” he told ABC News.
“We just don’t know what the weather is going to be.
I don’t have the best idea of how the temperature is going get there.”
D’Alegroos family has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on gear and gear purchases for the trip.
But he said he’s also looking forward to the upcoming Olympics.
“This is something that I’m very excited about, and I’m sure that many people are,” he added.
“It’s going to take us a lot of time to get used to.”
The ski resort is about 100 miles south of downtown Reno.
