My Skiing History:
I started skiing when I was 5 years old at Waterville Valley. I have been in the Seasonal program for 10 years. It is in this program that I was introduced to Telemarking by some of the instructors. I started Telemarking 4 years ago, and now do it full time.
My Goals and Motivation:
I would love to become a better Telemark skier. I think it is a lot of fun and great exercise. One of my goals is to introduce my friends to Telemark skiing. I think once they try it, they would really like it.
What I Love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:
I love when you are skiing down the mountain and people look at you because they have never seen it. Most of my friends have no idea what it is.
Interesting Facts About Myself:
When I am not skiing… I love to play Football and Lacrosse.
