Rhymes with Fran. Jan's steely gaze is the stuff of legend; known to have struck terror into the hearts of all Nakertok skiers - for almost 5 seconds.

I once saw Zoe riding down the stairs backwards on a unicycle while juggling chainsaws. I'd show you a picture, but I had my finger over the camera lens.

Carved out of stone and held together with bits of willow, Kyle is the kind of tough you don't want to mess with on the ski trails.  He's terrible at swimming though.
