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!


Thank you so much for believing in me and supporting my dream and life's journey in alpine racing on the World Cup and onward to the 2026 Olympics!

You inspire me – may I continue to inspire you!

Please join me on the donor's podium this season!

We are Team LilA!

As an independent athlete, competing on the World Cup with the U.S. Ski Team, I am fully responsible for funding all aspects of my ski racing season. 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 on the World Cup circuit and at the 2026 Olympics in Milano-Cortina builds the foundation of success from which I can excel in my sport – and inspire others to believe in their dreams too!

Lifted by your contributions and inspiration this past 2021-22 season, I was able to accomplish yet another level of elevated success in my racing: I won my 4th North America Cup Overall Slalom Title and secured guaranteed World Cup starts in Slalom for this upcoming 2023 World Championship season!

Thank you so much to everyone for your generosity and support

 I am forever grateful to all of you who have supported me throughout my career.

And thank you so much to each one of you who continues to believe in me by lighting my path through your good thoughts and prayers for my success in this sport

that I love so much.  


A special thanks to World Cup Dreams Foundation, Diamond Peak Ski Education Foundation, the SYNC Athlete Fund, Far West Skiing and Northstar Team Foundation and to my sponsors, partners and patrons.

Congratulations to the lucky winners of the grand-prize trip to Maui, Hawaii and the 3-day VIP experience at the 2023 U.S. National Championships in Sun Valley!!
