Katie first started skiing when she was 6 years old at Sheffield Ski Village. Her Dad took her and her sister Molly up there because he could see the slope from his office block. After the first lesson she knew she loved skiing and wanted to carry on learning and become a better skier.
Over the 2015/16 winter season she is hoping to get invited and compete in all the major events like the Dew Tour, X Games and Nine Queens and get a top 5 result in all of them. After that she aims to get a gold medal at the 2018 Olympics, which is 100% achievable considering her 7th place finish at Sochi 2014 and 2nd place at the World Freestyle Championships. She is working hard to try and make that dream come true but also wants to keep having as much fun as possible and to push the sport as much as she can. After all that's what it's all about, right?
