Hi, I’m Kristina.
Thank you for visiting my page. I’m an alpine ski racer and member of the BC Ski Team. As an athlete, I am often on the go, training and racing on the BC Cup and Nor-Am circuits, so this space is a way to keep in touch and share some of my experiences on and off the snow.
I am very lucky to be doing what I love, looking for speed on race courses in many beautiful parts of the world, and that is thanks to my parents, friends, teammates, coaches, and sponsors who have been there for me all these years. What you will see here is a testament to the ongoing support of that extended community, and maybe, hopefully, it will inspire younger skiers to work as hard as they possibly can and dream big.
So how did I end up here, chasing speed on the hill? Click on the tab below to find out.
Train, Race, Repeat
After a needed break to heal following a crash that left me a little bruised and with minor injuries (you know, the kind that take time to get past), I was excited to be on the circuit and racing again. There was no easing into my first event, the Kimberley Dreadnaught FIS Downhill. With a third-place finish in the U19 category, followed by wins in GS and Slalom in the FIS BC Cup Series at Whistler and on Grouse Mountain, things were getting back on track.
I then kept fighting to shave off seconds in my runs at the 2018 SportChek Canadian National Championships, leading to U21 podium finishes in slalom and GS. I took that momentum into the Western Spring Series, with podium results in GS and Super-G, before the Alpine Insurance Alberta Cup led me to finish the season as the FIS BC Cup Overall Champion.
This past season has given me a lot of confidence to tackle yet another big step in racing and in life. Soon I’ll be heading north to begin my studies at the University of Alaska and compete for the Seawolves on the NorAm circuit.
I am very proud to have the opportunity to continue working with HEAD. The combination of the B-series boots, bindings with the best safety record on the World Cup circuit, and the fastest skis on earth is unbeatable!
As a proud ambassador of HEAD, I want to say a very big thank you to all my sponsors! These also include Eat Your Cake, the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club, Shape Management, Ski Connexions, Terra-First Solutions, and UVEX.
I’ve been fortunate to have always been able to count on my parents’ support from the time I put on my first pair of skis. Between them and my sponsors, I have found a community of people who believe in me and my dream of one day making it to Team Canada, the World Cup circuit, and the Olympic Winter Games. To get there, I’ll need even more help, which is why I started a CrowdRise Campaign and set up a GoFundMe page.
Thank you in advance for visiting the page and considering helping me out. It will be like joining me on my journey as a member of the BC Ski Team and on my pathway to the Canadian Alpine Ski Team (hopefully!). I truly appreciate it. Every bit helps.

Back from Chile and Ready to RefuelHola! Just a little update after my first ski camp of the season: After a long summer dryland training camp, I couldn’t wait to get back on snow. My balance was better than before, and I finally learned to jump onto a yoga ball. My legs all toned up, I now have a st...
