My Skiing History:

I started skiing when I was two on the preview lift in Steamboat, CO and have loved it ever since. I switched from alpine to telemark in 6th grade when I was 14 as a way to challenge myself and explore the mountain in a new way. Growing up I always thought that to be a truly great skier you need to tele, which was another big reason for my switch. In 2014 I met Tanner Visnick, who also graduated from MSU, and he got me into tele racing during the Christmas camp at Steamboat. I competed in my first telemark race on New Years Day at Howelsen Hill and competed in the 2015 Nationals in Sunlight, CO. It has been an incredible experience and I’m looking forward another fun season!

My Goals and Motivation:

For this season, I would really like to get back on the hill and race against my friends that I haven’t seen since Nationals in 2019. I would also like to travel to Europe with my teammate to do a World Cup if the COVID conditions allow for it.

What I love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:

There is nothing like the energy that one can transmit through their skis with a perfect tele carve or the feeling of freedom to move three dimensionally in deep pow.

Interesting Facts About Myself:

In the summers I race with the Tokyo Joes Mountain bike team doing cross country races around Colorado. It isn’t quite as short or intense as telemark racing but it gives me some great endurance for long classic courses.
