Cheap ski holidays in hundreds of ski resorts worldwide.
You’ve had a pretty eventful year, what have been your highlights so far? The highlight for me has been the X-Games, I think that’s the pinnacle that everyone wants to get to. Only eight girls in the world get invited. Just to get an invite is an achievement in itself and I was happy just to be there. I got a fourth. When I look back over my season that’s definitely the thing I was happiest with. Congratulations Thank you Where is your favourite place to ski? My favourite place to ski is Breckenridge in America, it has the best park in the world and also everyone from skiing & snowboarding is there so you can catch up with people you haven’t seen for a couple of months. When you’re not on the slopes what can we find you doing? I spend a lot of time in the gym and at the physiotherapist. Normally half my time when I’m not on the slope goes toward making me better on the slopes, a lot of trampolining. Apart from that I hang out with my friends a lot. Who’s your hero? Sarah Burke. She unfortunately passed away last year due to an injury in the half pipe but she’s the reason why girls get to compete in the X-games, and she’s one of the main reasons why we’re in the Olympics. She really pushed forward for that. When we’re all skiing at the Olympics everyone will be skiing for her. Winter is just around the corner, what are your plans for the season? My plans are to be back in Breckenridge at the start of the season for a couple of months and then really just follow the competition circuit where ever that takes us. Not too sure yet, it will probably be a different country every week but it’s cool. If you could ski somewhere in the world where you haven’t been before, where would it be and why? I think New Zealand, I haven’t managed to be there for their winter but that’s somewhere that everyone goes and I think it looks like a pretty cool place, so it sounds good. It’s a very exciting time for British snow sports with the Olympics coming up, what are your hopes for the games? Obviously I’d love to win a medal. I’m going to try and put the best run down that I can. I’ll try my hardest and hopefully I can. If I finish top ten or top five I’ll be happy. I just want to have fun and experience it and try and get the best result I can. What do you think chances are for the British ski and board team to get medals? I think we have a huge chance. There are loads of different athletes that are up with a chance of winning medals. Not just ski and snowboard but we’ve got loads of good skeleton people. I think this will be one of the best games that team GB have ever had. And that fact that slopestyle is in it for the first time and halfpipe skiing is going to be pretty cool. So I’m just looking forward to it. Thank you very much. Thank you.
