I was raised in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire deep in the countryside. Being brought up in this region I learned to respect the unpredictability, beauty, and power the mountains possess.
For a short time I attended GMVS, a ski racing academy located in the beautiful Mad River Valley of Vermont. Within five miles of each other lie three ski areas; Mad River Glen, Lincoln Peak, and Mt. Ellen. All of which have certain individual characteristics that make them unique. Itâ€™s because of these qualities I still reside here.
While at the academy I learned what I think is the core of skiing when it comes to technique, but in the back of my mind as we were slipping the precious powder off the race course I was dreaming of the less structured â€œfree rideâ€ style. Whether itâ€™s glades, steeps, powder, bumps, or skinning to the top of my secret stash; to me the real beauty is choosing where I want to turn, when I want to turn, and how I want to turn. Unlike on a race course I need the freedom to be able to adapt to the terrain and create my own route.
This is the basis of who I am and why I would be a suitable â€œLange girlâ€. Iâ€™m beautiful, as with the mountains Iâ€™ll hover in the background seemingly mysterious Iâ€™ll keep you wondering, but if you adjust your line the right way youâ€™ll have a sweet ride.
