My Skiing History:

I started skiing at age 3 with my family, and joined Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club at the age of 6. Then I joined the SSWSC Tele devo team at the age of 9, and it changed my life. That brought me to start competing. I have completed in Nastar Nationals three times in the Telemark division, and have competed at US Tele Nationals twice.

My Goals and Motivation:

My goals and motivations are to become the best skier and racer that I can be. Being able to ski all of the mountain and compete in numerous competitions is one of my main goals. I want to improve my Telemarking skills and my mindset about the sport.

 

What I Love about Telemark Skiing and Racing:

The things that I love about Telemark Racing and Skiing, is the uniqueness of it and how much you can always improve at it. When I first saw Telemark racing, it took my breath away. I love how much it can push people and improve people mentally and physically. The community is also a big part of being a Tele,ark skier and racer, and I love it so much!

 

Interesting Facts about Myself:

Some interesting facts about myself are that, I have been going to Steamboat every weekend since I was born, and I moved here this summer. Steamboat has always been my second home, and I wouldn’t trade it with anything else. Lacrosse is also a big part of my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. Another big part of my life is my writing, and I hope to publish a book some day. I am a twin and have two big dogs with dreadlocks. I love Steamboat and skiing in general.
