Olympian's CT home for sale, includes luge track

Posted: Updated:
RIDGEFIELD -

The Ridgefield home of a member of the United States Olympic luge team is up for sale.

The home of Tucker West, at 390 West Mountain Road, comes complete with the luge track that produced the two-time Olympian, who is currently competing in the Winter Games in South Korea.

West's sister, Gracie, says the home track was key to her brother's success.

"If we never did it, he would have never gotten into it," she says. "But since our dad is over-the-top about everything, he just had to do it and it just pushed Tucker to get there."

The family built the luge in 2003 after watching the sport in the Olympics. After a rough start in PyeongChang, West is in 18th place with two more chances ahead.
