years riding

I am a 24 year old skier from Whistler BC. I was raised in Whistler by my mum, started skiing at the age of 3 and am very lucky to still be able to call this home. I started out as a mogul skier competing nationally and at Norams. After seeing Jen Heil win the 2006 Olympic Gold in Moguls I decided that was what I wanted to do and represent Canada at the Olympics, but in the spring of 2011 it all changed when slopestyle was announced an Olympic event. At that time I was beginning to lose interest in moguls so I made the switch to slopestyle and things moved fast from there, I was on the provincial park team for one year and the next thing I know I had made the national team. It was a dream come true and going to the Sochi 2014 Olympics became that much closer and eventually a reality.

Representing Canada at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi and 2018 in Pyeongchang were both unforgettable experiences, placing 6th at both. Walking into the opening ceremonies wearing the Canadian leaf were my favorite moments there and the moment it really hit me that I made it to the Olympics. I am currently competing on the World Cup circuit with the Canadian National Team, while sneaking in as many days in the backcountry as I can.

Why Rumble?

Rumble is my go to to keep me fuelled through the day. Anywhere from nerve filled competition day where I don't want to be skiing on a full stomach to those early morning ascends into the mountains.
