Why I Ski
I grew up next to a cross-country ski trail system. Before I could walk, my parents put me in a backpack and we skied the hilly course behind our house. My mom says she knew I liked it because I would laugh when we went down the hills. Fifteen years later, these are the trails I train on with Aspen Valley Ski Club.
I love the feeling of flying across the snow. I love being outside, experiencing the stunning snowy place where I live. I love the sense of achievement that comes from doing really tough things. I love working hard (and having fun) with my awesome teammates and coaches. Skiing motivates me to be the best I can and try my hardest.
Skiing is an expensive sport. I don’t want that to get in the way of other kids having this experience. I have benefited from the support of scholarships and sponsors, so now I want to pass that along.*
