"As a competitive skier you are always looking for the best equipment and best set up to give you an edge on the other racers… Good vision is key and I love the goggles as well as the lenses Bollé produces. Slaloms can get bumpy and I need to see those bumps in bad light!"

"I started skiing to be able to go on the annual family ski holiday for 2 weeks a year. I loved the sport and I also love competition so it was normal for me to try racing in the UK. It took me a longer time than most to progress on snow as I hadn’t skied so much when I was young. I feel I am still learning and still improving and I feel I proved this last season finishing 2nd in Kitzbuhel which was an incredible day and also having a further 5 top 10 results! I managed to finish the World Cup tour in 8th and would like to think I am still able to improve on this in the future! I love training and racing and love the life in the mountains."
