My Skiing History:

I grew up skiing at Cannon and learned to Telemark when I was seven. My parents would take me to the New England Telemark Festivals and put me in the kids’ clinics with Grant and Jill. I started Nordic racing for my school’s team in seventh grade, which inspired me to race Telemark.

My Goals and Motivation:

My goals for the upcoming year are to become better at telemarking both in and out of the gates while becoming more confident at the same time.

What I Love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:
I love that the telemark community is like a huge family and really nice – the competition is friendly. Everyone helps each other out and works together to improve as a team.
