SAPPORO: A fanciful idea that started out as a joke among young members of one of Malaysia’s most prominent families has snowballed into a fully fledged ski team and dreams of Olympic success.

Despite being a tropical, snowless country, Malaysia has created its own alpine ski team -- albeit with only two members -- which is currently competing at the 8th Asian Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan.
