What does skiing mean to you: Everything! Skiing is more than just a sport, and I think the fact that skiing brings so many different people together is so inspiring. Skiing is my passion and it shows me that I can really push myself passed my limits to achieve my goals and dreams. Skiing is something to look forward to, something to work towards, and something that fills all my thoughts and every moment of my spare time.
Why do you love it: Skiing is one of the most rewarding things in life I think, whether it’s stomping a new trick in the park, slashing some deep pow, or even just ripping around on corduroy with some friends, you can always have a great time, I don’t think there are many more things in life that special. I love that skiing is always offering new experiences, bringing people together, and is a constant source of adventure. I always have the most fun when I’m skiing; days filled with friends, snow and a few features to jib on… what else could you ask for!
Females in skiing today: The number of girls that can rip it up on the slopes these days is crazy. Just the fact how many girls are stoked on the sport is pretty rad! Some constant inspirations for me have been Maude Raymond, and Dania Assaly, they rip. Along with Roz Groenewoud, Keri Herman, and of course Sarah Burke. These ladies are a constant inspiration for any type of girl skier and continue to set the bar for women’s skiing, always taking things to a new level and helping girls like myself and many others to achieve their goals!
