Thank You        Hvala        Danke!

I am so grateful for my family, friends, fans, sponsors and patrons who have believed in me and supported me for my

entire career.


An athlete's success is measured not only by the way one can ski under pressure and win; true success is attained through grace, kindness, enthusiasm and the pure joy of skiing fast!


You inspire me – may I continue to inspire you!

Thank you for continuing to believe in me!

To support my journey to the Olympics and beyond:

"Operation Olympia 2022"


















Please Join me on the Donor’s Podium this Olympic season!


The Donor Podium Grand Prize

~ for contributions at the Silver, Gold and Crystal Globe Levels ~

is a week in Maui, Hawaii


As an independent athlete, I am fully responsible for funding my upcoming season in an Olympic year. Your generosity will help offset the costs of my training and competition fees, travel, lodging and my coaching/professional performance expenses.

Your support on my journey to represent the USA in Alpine Skiing at the 2022 Olympics and to race the World Cup builds the foundation of success from which I can excel in my sport – and inspire others to believe in their dreams too!
