My Skiing History:

I started alpine skiing when I could walk and around age five I began to telemark. My parents put me in my first holiday camp with Schweitzer Alpine Racing School (alpine) when I was nine. A year later I went to my first Telemark National in Whitefish, MT. I have raced in five US Telemark Nationals and two Canadian Telemark Nationals. 

My Goals and Motivation:

This year I am going to focus on improving my jumping technique as well as my skating tempo. I am an alpine and telemark racer and I believe that by doing both it strengthens my skiing. One day I hope to compete in the Telemark World Cup and travel to Europe.

What I love about Telemark Racing: 

I love that telemark racing poses different challenges than alpine racing. The gates, jump, skating and wrap are all obstacles that you have to ski through in the quickest amount of time. I also love the attitude of the racers, at the end of a race there are usually people out there cheering for all the racers..

Interesting Facts About Myself:

I like to play soccer, trail run and mountain bike. I can also juggle and play the violin.
