I am obsessed with skiing. Basically my singular personally trait is that I ski. As soon as I could walk my parents put me on skis. For as long as I can remember my family has gone to our little log cabin in Vermont to go skiing every single weekend.
As soon as I was old enough to join the development program at my mountain. At age 9 I won second place in the annual parent child race, then at age 11 I won 2nd again, and by age 13 I was determined to win first, and I did.
At age 14 I started coaching in the program I grew up being an athlete in, and at 15 I also started helping ski patrol with cutting down trees and pulling sleds.
I am now still a coach teaching the next generation of little rippers, as well as racing for my college ski team where I am the secretary, and qualified for regionals this past season. And still to this day, almost every conversation I ever have includes at least a few things about snow and skiing, because like I said I am beyond obsessed!
