What Skiing is to Me

Since I was little my parents have always brought my siblings and I to the mountains to share their passion for skiing with us. Unfortunately, we didn’t always live in the right place. For five years my family lived in Texas and skiing was only achievable during school holidays and required at minimum a 14 hour drive to New Mexico or Colorado.

When we moved to Washington it was like a dream come true, we could ski every weekend and even weekdays after school. My parents never pressured us to ski and for that I am forever grateful. Through the years I had to give up my other sports starting with swimming and motor cross, then fencing, soccer, gymnastics and finally cross country running as skiing slowly took over more and more of my time and passion.

Now I happily spend as much time on snow as possible following winter all year round. Rain, shine, snow, wind or fog it is always a good time!
