I ski and snowboard at Perisher NSW and also have to travel to Mount Buller and other resorts like Thredbo for races. Last year I made it through to National level in division 5 representing my school Cooma North Public School in the Interschools snow sports program Skiercross and alpine. I train in the part time alpine program with Winter Sports Club which teaches me a lot of race techniques and exercises and nutrition. My first race was when I was 7 in Skiercross for interschools, I am now 10. This year I aim to race in skiing and snowboard downhill and cross events. I Started training in 2015 and will continue this year, before then just free skiing with family.
