What do you most enjoy about the IFSA community?

The IFSA season this year has been unreal. Freeride skiing is my happy place. Not only is it an outlet for creativity and adrenaline, but the community is extremely special. I experienced a lot of growth both in my skiing and my outlook on life this season, and I couldn’t be more thankful for all the people around me. We couldn’t experience all of these moments without the IFSA foundation!

What are you up to in the off-season?

Since I was traveling a lot this winter, this summer I am going to spend most of my time at home adventuring around Tahoe. I’ll work at at Truckee’s best sushi restaurant, Drunken Monkey, and I’ll entertain myself with the endless activities my home has to offer. Also Lily and I are making a fire edit so look out ;)..

Who are your Freeride heros?

My two sisters Annika and Mia (former IFSA Region 2 Champion) are probably my top inspirations. Growing up with two badass female role models has shaped me into who I am today. Also shoutout to Elyse Saugstad for changing the game for women’s skiing. She is mind-boggling!
