I believe the two styles complement each other perfectly, and my goal has always been to experience every facet of the sport and become a well-rounded skier. I can’t wait to embrace this new challenge. I'm here to learn, stay true to my passion for skiing, and hopefully deliver an outstanding performance! », stated the skier.
