>Your most valuable mental skill & why?

I think the most valuable mental skill is flexibility. Ski racing is an extremely variable sport, from snow and weather conditions to injuries and recoveries. Being flexible allows an athlete to take what they are given and choose a path forward, rather than get overwhelmed and stationary.

Deer Valley and Attitash (haha very opposite, I realize)

Favorite race venue in the world:

Cortina D'Ampezzo

Have any unusual talents?

I can name every country in the world!

Advice to Jr Athletes:
Trust yourself and never be afraid to ask questions. Also, cherish the joy that sports bring to your life!!!

My Motto:
Progress not perfection
