My Skiing History:
I started skiing when I was 10 at Sugarloaf. There was a group of 4 ripping tele skiers that I idolized so by the time I turned 12 I converted to a full-time telemark skier and never looked back. Skiing took over my entire life, my senior year of high school I joined the race team to ski a few extra days a week to meet my goal of 100 days a season which I have done every year since. I moved to Salt Lake City, UT to ski at Alta and go to college. In Utah, I met an amazing community of telemark skiers and was exposed to my first telemark race
in 2015. In the tele community, I have been able to grow my skiing in many different aspects including racing, using leather boots and 3 pin bindings, tele snow blading (snolermarking) and big mountain competitions. All of these things and
the amazing group of people I have met keep me in love with the sport.
My Goals and Motivation:
Ski fast, drink good beer, have fun.
What I love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:
The community, the stoke, and being knee-deep every day.
