My name is Mara White, I'm 17 and I have a dream.I dream of flying down mountains chased by other skiers, I dream of launching off jumps shoulder to shoulder and I dream of being the fastest and standing on the podium. My goal is to ultimately make it to the US Ski Team and ski in the Olmpics someday.
What is Skicross? Think motocross on skis, with 4-6 skiers at a time on the course, with jumps and banked turns at 40+ miles an hour. Yes, it's scary sometimes and there is a little rollerderby, but for me it's the most exciting kind of racing there is. Skicross was also one of the top rated televised race events at the 2014 Olympics at Sochi.
Last year I finished both the US and North American Championships with 1st place over all. This qualifies me to compete in Euro Cup and World Cup events, both precursers to the Olympics. The US Team want me to keep it real and only compete in a couple of each. Just to get my feet wet in the big pool.
It's going to be a challenge, mentally, physically and financially. This is why I'm looking for all the support I can get. Here's some ways you can help support me.
