I first skied almost 18 years ago and became immediately hooked!
As my skiing progressed I became interested in becoming a Ski Instructor and now love introducing new skiers to the sport. I became involved in Team Snowtrax first as a parent and then as a participant racer! I now have the privilege of working as a coach in the team, skiing amongst great skiers and friends.
