My Skiing History:
I learned to ski in Scotland at aged 12 and raced a little in high school and a little more at the University of Glasgow.

After moving to the US in The 1999 I did shares in a house at Killington for about 5 years and stayed at a friend’s house for about 5 more. During that time I made the switch from mogul skier to telemarker.

My family and I have skied at Bromley since 2017 and my two daughters are in the Alpine Racing program at Bromley Outing Club.

 

My Goals and Motivation:
I love being outside in the winter and look forward to my first season on the Masters Team.

Measuring my skiing against the other racers is a great test.

Hopefully Keith’s coaching will help me keep up with my daughters too.

 

What I Love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:
I love telemark racing as a way to improve my skiing. The challenge of being forced to turn where someone else has directed is a lot tougher than it sounds.
 

Interesting Facts About Myself:
My family has a dog called Coisty named after the Scottish soccer player Ally McCoist.
