Sometimes you rip it and sometimes you don’t, it has been very challenging to manage all of the details of my ski racing career by myself this season and I feel very proud to have accomplished my goal of representing the United States at the 2015 World Championships on home soil! Thank you to everyone who supports my journey, you make it possible for me to live my dream!!!
The World Cup and North American Cup schedules have allowed me a break from racing the past few weeks of January and I have been using that time to do lots of skiing!
I am so thankful to Tim Kohl and everyone at Alta Ski Area for some amazing days on the mountain!

I also want to thank the Yates family and everyone at DataXstream for organizing such a successful event with the Wintergreen Ski Team. It was so fun to share my passion for the sport with so many enthusiastic kids and parents. #DreamBig
Here is a link to a video on the event by w-set TV:
And then, of course, I have been training hard!
Thank you Podium Ski Service for keeping my skis fast!
And THANK YOU to Cody Marshall for the coaching!
And Lastly, the BIG NEWS, I will be competing for USA at the 2015 World Championships in Beaver Creek next month!!!
Thank you for all of the new likes on my Facebook page! All of the support I have been receiving has been really uplifting on this month’s adventure! There have been some good days and some tough ones but I am grateful to be healthy and heading home for Christmas break with friends and family.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
I couldn’t help posting these pictures, check out this gingerbread house!
Independent Ski Racing just got home from a three week trip to Europe that started with a training block on the glaciers in Schnastal, Italy and Hintertux, Austria and ended racing the World Cup Opener in Sölden! Here are some photos of the adventure:
Our work paid off and I was super excited to be one of the three America girls in the top-30 in the tough conditions of the World Cup opening GS in Sölden- bib 54 to 26th place!
Lastly, a huge thank you to Sally Martin and Harold Kaufmann for flying me to and from Europe on Delta!
To Podium Ski Service in Park City for getting my skis ready to race!
And to DataXstream for all of your support!
Thank you to everyone who helped make my training camp in New Zealand possible…..
When I returned home it was fall in Utah and because I am a mountain girl, I had to get out and enjoy it!
I want to thank everyone who attended my fundraiser on September 26th, it was a huge success! I have been working hard to get all my wonderful donors their tax receipts! If you have not yet received yours, please leave a comment on this post to let me know!
Now it is time to get the last details for the season organized before I head to Austria for on-snow training before the World Cup opener in Soelden. I want to thank Cody Marshall for coming to coach me in Europe, we are going to have a blast!
I can’t wait to SKI!
