One last hurrah

I came into the last race of the season knowing that I had to win if I were to pose a shot at taking the overall World Cup title. The way the numbers worked out, I needed to win and the girls who were only points ahead of me in the standings had to place in third position or […]

World Champion!

The last week and a bit of my life has been a whirl wind to say the least. I had no doubt in my mind that I could win X Games, and I did. Crashing through the finish line was not what I had in mind but it was sure exciting to watch! The crash left my body in […]

Making History

I started this season with only two goals: win X Games and win World Championship. I have managed to get one of those titles down and will be working to achieve the second starting tomorrow. In the finish some one asked me what gold tastes like. At that point I told him that it tasted like blood…now its a […]

Canadian Culinary Championships

Coming home to Kelowna and Big White is like going on vacation for me. Its so nice to be able to be back, eat home cooked meals, sleep in my own bed, and see all of my friends and family.

I spent a few days at home working with Joel at Pinnacle Physiotherapy before heading up the mountain for some […]

Black and Blue

The previous stop on our World Cup tour was in Blue Mountain, Ontario. Last year, this event was amazing with tons of eager spectators cheering on their Canadian team. This year was much of the same story. There were over 1500 young students lined up along the fences hootin’ and hollering at the finish line, along with some 3000 […]

Day 2 at Winter X Games

So I lied when I said I would have photos from today (the ones posted are from last year). I was stressing all last night and this morning about the massive finish jump and at that point, brining a camera was not a high priority. Thankfully, now us girls have another jump to hit onto the last pitch. Although […]

Day 1 at Winter X Games

Holly crap, this year’s course at X Games is HUGE!! We had training today from 1pm to 3:30pm and I am thankful to make it through the session in one piece. The final jump coming into the finish is bigger than the “Big Air” jump featured beside ours. As enormous as some of the features are, this course is […]

Signing posters a Big White Ski Resort

I feel like the luckiest person in town! Today I got to experience what it feels like to be a celebrity. Well, at least in the eyes of the children and my mountain friends. I sat down at 3:00pm in the Village Centre Mall at Big White Ski Resort this Saturday to be greeted by many.

I just wanted to […]

First in Alpe D’Huez, France

So I totally did not expect to take the gold this past Wednesday in Alpe D’Huez France. Once I was in the finals I figured I was going to end up either second or third…not first! I’m pretty stoked right now. Here’s how it all went down.

The women’s second semi final round saw Ophelie David of France stacked up […]

The Night Race

Today we went to Kitzbhuel to checkout the Hanhnenkamm. A few of the fences have already been set up for the race. I couldn’t imagine pushing out of the start gate to embark on a suicide mission down that track. Within the first 100m, racers are traveling over 100km/h. There have been grown men throwing up in the start […]
