New Zealand National Skier
My career in ski racing began at Coronet Peak in 2001 with a school holiday program - learning to ski, and weekends, to where I am now a full time athlete. I have also spent time training at Cardrona and Treble Cone. For the past twelve years, summers have been spent in the northern hemisphere continuing the training. This has been in Europe, Canada and the USA. For the northern hemisphere winter season, training starts in Colorado until Christmas then to Europe through to early April. I participated in the Olympics in Sochi, Russia February 2014 and World Ski Championships at Schladming, Austria in 2013 as well as Beaver Creek, Colorado in 2015.
I am proud to represent New Zealand at the highest level of alpine skiing and I am a member of the New Zealand National Ski Team.
Currently training for:
My New Zealand season will begin in June 2016 with technical training at Mt Hutt prior the start of training and racing at Coronet Peak. The main races I will be competing in will be ANC (Australia New Zealand Continental Cup Series) in both Australia and New Zealand, as well as National Championship races. This New Zealand season is an important part in the criteria leading up to the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.
Longer term, the next World Ski Championships are in 2017 – St Moritz, and the next Winter Olympics are in South Korea, 2018. My aim is to continue to lower my World ranking to guarantee a competitive start position in these major events.
