Ski experience:

I have been skiing for nearly 2 years, starting in the Junior Club at my local dry slope in Stoke. I have been to Whistler twice and taken part in ski camps where the instructors have taken me off piste, on moguls and on black runs. I started freestyle about a year ago and regularly attend the groms with Pat Sharples. I have just got back from the British Ski Camp at Saas-Fee.

Training:

I train about 4 times a week

Latest Competition results:

June 2008- Norfolk Grom, most improved skier award

6th July 2008- 1st place Quicksilver Freeski Big Air at Halifax (British Snow Tour)

12th July 2008- 3rd place Animal British Slopestyle Championships at Chatham (British Snow Tour)

Favourite tricks:

My favourite tricks are 360's with grabs and 540's, and truck drivers. I am working hard at landing my 720’s.

Other comments:

I love freestyle because it’s challenging and I have met a load of friends.
