Abby started skiing when she was almost 3 years old. She loved her first day on snow and she quickly learned the sport and loved being on the ski hill. In 2014, when she was 8, Abby started with a race club, in a Racing Program at the U-10 level. She loved the club. She loved her coaches; she loved the other kids; she loved the winter out at Nakiska and loved the sport. She excelled so much in her first year.
The 2015/16 ski season started early with dryland training in September. This year Abby started in a higher level and a new team: U-10+. There she was with a lot of old friends, but also met new friends, new coaches and continued her love for skiing. She was super excited about the new challenges this season would bring.
Although Abby isn’t with us any longer, we want her name, her happiness, her loving spirit, and love for skiing to be remembered forever. To do this we are going to start “Abby Award”. It is our dream to see Abby’s Award given out annually to one U10 ski racer in every club across the country who brings their happiness, high spirit and fun loving attitude to their ski team.
