Freeriding Titles

  • 1st overall IFSA 2016, 1st in the Whistler Noram Champs

Describe a highlight moment from your 2015 IFSA season.

I had many highlighted moments over the 2016 season for sure, but if I were to narrow it down I would definitely say winning the North American Champs was probably one of the best.

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

When I'm not freeriding you can find me trapped at school, training for the season, or watching ski videos to keep me pumped!

What topic makes you fired up?

Skiing in general always gets me fired up, but big dumps and big jumps are specifically something that gets me stoked:)

Tell us something about yourself that is unusual or little known.

This past season was my first season competing in junior big mountain competitions, although I have been skiing my entire life.
