My Skiing History:
Skiing for me began the winter after graduating college in 2011. Telemark looked interesting to me so I bought some boots and skis on ebay and gave it a shot. I was immediately hooked on the new challenge. That same winter I entered the first ski race of my life…Kare Anderson Festival @ Bromley Mountain in Vermont. A few weeks later I was participating in the US National Championships @ Gunstock Mountain Resort.
Two years later I became a part of the U.S. Telemark Regional Team, which became the Development team the following years.
This winter will be my third year on the US National Telemark Team.
My Goals and Motivation:
I have always like trying new sports and challenges. Personally, Telemark skiing is the most challenging sport that I have pursued.
My goal is to improve each year….to ski faster, jump further and spread the sport of Telemark Racing. I want to improve my skiing all-around.
What I Love About Telemark Racing:
I love the challenge of Telemark skiing, whether it’s racing or playing in the bumps and trees, turning knee shots into face shots. Also the community…racers that are all working toward the same thing…trying to improve..
Interesting Facts About Myself:
Mountain Biking is my Second Passion…and I plan on getting into some Enduro Races this Summer.
