Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of support since the Olympic team naming, I can’t even keep up with all of the kind messages I have been receiving! I am still trying to find the right words to express how being a part of the 2014 Olympic team feels after all of the hurdles in the past four years….SO HAPPY is a start!!! I am choosing to focus on all of the people that have supported me and believed in me up to this point, ski racing independently would not have been possible without you! A special thank you to my mom Sue McJames, my dad Scott McJames, my little brother Kevin McJames, Bill McJames, my best friend/coach Cody Marshall, Pat and Ann-Sofie Andrews, Groundswell Athletics and Bob and Merritt Bennett, Fischer, Lange, POC, Swix, Leki, Yetti Apparel, Wizbang hats, Park City Ski Team, Rowmark, Podium Ski Service, Pyramid Consulting, T2 Foundation, Team America and many, many more donors, sponsors and friends!
Thank you to my family, friends, donors and sponsors who stood by me on some really, REALLY hard days! Ski racing independently wouldn’t be possible without you!

We successfully ended the preparation period and have started race season full swing! After three weeks of training in Colorado my racing is off to a good start with some competitive runs, cold temperatures and fun! I have my first two podiums of the season under my belt, a second place in FIS giant slalom and a third place in North American Cup super combine. I will be spending the next month in Europe chasing the so far elusive World Cup result!
