Alix’s Ski Journey:
Prince George Ski Club (’03-’10) à Windermere Valley Ski Club (’10-’11) à BCST (’11-’15) à NCAA University of Alaska Anchorage (’15-’19)
Coaching: Grouse Tyee Ski Club (’17-’19) & Prince George Ski Club (’19-’20)
Best Ski Racing Memory:
Fall training camps in Portillo, Chile: amazing training, great food, phenomenal views.
The first time I skied without pain in my leg after injury.
Fav thing to do on skis:
Snow blading at Apex or Kimberley.
Next best activity:
Mountain biking, trail running, water skiing & rollerblading
“Wherever you are, be there”. My advice would be to enjoy all the amazing places ski racing takes you over the years, and all the friends you make. In short, enjoy the process and try to reflect on what other skills beyond skiing you’re learning along the way.
Random Fun Fact:
I recently became an Auntie.
I’ve rollerbladed the seawall with Antonia Wearmouth, who was the #1 GFF speaker and is a fellow rollerblade enthusiast.
Big Shout outs:
