Background

Maisie is 20 years old and comes from North Wales. She started skiing on the Plas y Brenin dry slope in Snowdonia when she was six but didn’t get into snowsports seriously until she moved to Chamonix with her family at the age of eight. Maisie joined the Chamonix Snowboard Club and at secondary school was in a snowsports class that enabled her to train with the club during the school week as well as at weekends.

Training

Currently Maisie competes in halfpipe and boardercross at Europa Cup level and has had a great winter, finishing in the top 17 and gaining enough points to qualify for the World Cup next season. During the summer Maisie combined her training with working at 'Surf Snowdonia' and was back on the snow in October. Her season started with training on the glaciers in Austria, ready for the European Cup in Pitztal in December. 

Future Goals

Looking ahead, Maisie hopes to appear regularly in the top 16 at Europa Cup level this season as well as competing in World Cup Competitions, whilst keeping her eye firmly on her long-term goal of competing in the Olympics.
