      Favorite place to ski is Darwin in NT and Swiss Ski school in Florida because conditions are always perfect.

      I train behind a Malibu TXI.

      I have created a few women only events to help increase the female profile of our sport and to give them as much encouragement, motivation and belief to give skiing a go. To get them competing and off the sidelines wishing!

      Who's your favourite skier?
      He'll kill me for this, Craig Jeude. He doesn't know this but he has influenced me so much. He taught me to always enjoy my skiing, stay calm in competitions, believe in myself, have a go, have a laugh and the results will come.

      Describe a perfect day. 
      A perfect day is no alarm, coffee in bed, 30 degrees, a couple of training sets on the Dawson river with my partner Shorty, a long walk with my dog Tucker and salmon cooked on the BBQ.
