Filip Flisar

"I was a wild kid when I was born and deep down I never changed. I love discovering new things, I’m addicted to speed and testing my limits. In the off season I transform into a racer on two wheels. I'mjust as home on a BMX, mountain bike or dirt bike as I'm on skis. I’m also really into music. I love discovering new places and cooking with my girlfriend’s recipes."
FILIP FLISAR

Brady Leman

"I’m always up for adventure and love trying new things. Wait, this sounds like a dating profile. I can also be intense. I take training very seriously, I have high expectations for myself and work extremely hard to live up to those expectations... I love being outside in nature. Training and competition for Ski Cross can be so time consuming and intense that I really need a break from the stress of competition, I turn to my hobbies for that, and it gives me a good break. Fishing definitely has a special place. Salmon fishing has a particular charm for me. It teaches you patience and dedication and these virtues are very important in skiing and life in general."
BRADY LEMAN

Kevin Drury

"I love being outside in the mountains. Most of all though, I absolutely love sports. Growing up I played everything I possibly could. I was a competitive tennis player, I played hockey, soccer, rugby, badminton, squash and rode bikes... ” I still play hockey in the spring and fall and soccer and squash in the summer. But most of all I bike. When I'm out East in Canada I stick to road biking, but during the summers in Whistler I ride Enduro. Biking is very similar to skiing. You have to choose your lines, react to bumps and jumps and everything that comes at you..."
KEVIN DRURY

Kelsey Serwa

"I enjoy new experiences and sharing them with close friends. On the flip side, I’m a hard worker, and am very dedicated and passionate about the things I set my mind to. I want to enjoy what I’m doing. I’m also quite competitive so I want to always be the best at everything I do. Sometimes I find myself drifting away from happiness and focus too much on perfection, but not for long."
KELSEY SERWA

Brittany Phelan

"I’m generally a happy person, and always try and do things that make me enjoy life. It’s hard to say which sport I like more. I get a lot of the same feelings from riding my bike as I do from skiing, so the long summer months in between ski camps go by a lot quicker when I’m out riding my bike. When I’m not skiing, I’m biking everyday."
BRITTANY PHELAN

Terence Tchiknavorian

"On the one hand I am a lonely boy. On the other I like meeting people who are interested in the same things and have the same passion as me. I am doing a lot of sport, all the time. When I am not skiing,I do skateboarding, surfing, biking...I also love to travel around the world. I take at least a three week vacation every year. This part of the year is very important for me. The season is very long and full of training and racing, so I need to get away to relax and unwind. Travelling to far away places works best for me so I can forget my everyday life."
TERENCE TCHIKNAVORIAN

Medals, titles and awards

I was never one to reminisce much about my memories and past successes. Actually, I don’t think about them at all and have already forgotten many. I feel that living in the past has no meaning. Resting on old laurels is nothing more than resting. Today it’s 2018 and all these things took place in the seventies and eighties of the past century. It was all so long ago that both a century and a millennium have turned since then.

Mountains with friends

Ski mountaineering is a lonely undertaking. Perhaps that is why I enjoy spending time on snow with my wife, kids and friends that much more. At the end of March, we took a trip to mount Peca. It was a magical day.
