SQUAD SELECTIONS HAVE NOW BEEN PUBLISHED
Gold medallist in the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games
"In the early stages of my ski career, I was delighted to have been invited on the ESSKIA squad through competing at the Regional and English Finals events. I have many fond memories of the alpine camps, especially the ISF (World Schools Championships). To represent England at such a young age was a fantastic experience and I would urge all young skiers to aim for the selection. ESSKIA provides a great platform for young and enthusiastic skiers to improve their skiing , to make new friends and to create some of the best memories. "
Olympian & British Number One Ski Cross Athlete
"I started skiing at the age of 3 on family holidays and recruited to make up the numbers on my school ski race team at the age of 12. Having had no previous race experience, ESSKIA was my first introduction to racing and I loved it. That year I was selected for the ESSKIA squad and went on my first ski training camp across to Norway with the team, what an amazing experience and something I remember to this day! Following a successful Alpine career I made the switch to Ski Cross in 2005 and went on to represent GB on the World Cup circuit, competing in 3 World Championships and achieving a life long dream of representing Team GB at the 2018 Olympic Games and making British history. I’m truly thankful for all the opportunities this sport has given me, the places I’ve travelled, friends I’ve made and lessons I’ve learnt ... it’s really is something special!”
