A. 2005 to 2009, 11 to 16 years old. (Alpine skiing)
Q. Who were your friends in the club?
A. I remember my time in the club as being part of a big family; everyone looked out for each other in one way or another. To be honest, I couldn’t list my friends from the club without a full roster from each year.
Q. What is your favorite club memory?
A. I remember the thrill of getting dropped off at Howelsen to go on a trip. Loading the van, saying goodbye to my parents, skipping school and going on a trip to a new ski area with all of my friends. The excitement of it all never got old!
Q. What are you doing now?
A. I am entering my fifth season as a member of the U.S. Ski Team. During the summer, I attend college at Westminster College in Salt Lake.
Q. What impact did the club have on you?
A. Besides being a stepping stone to my path as a ski racer, the Winter Sports Club has grounded me to the skiing and Steamboat communities. I have such a deep love for my sport, and I hope to share it with the communities that have encouraged me to take this journey.
