    I raced until I was 13, but I stopped having fun with it.

    I had an ankle injury that made it so I couldn't be in a ski boot for a few years. When I came back, I was just hanging out with my friends, learning to have fun again.

    Last year I was a rookie [on the Freeski World Tour] and did two events. I'm going to try as many as I can this year.

    I work really hard. I push myself. I try to jump off something bigger and scarier every single day.

    I don't think any experience is the same as jumping off of a cliff. It's scary. You really have to work yourself up for it.

    Maybe once I've been dropping huge cliffs for a year of my life, then it'll be no big deal.
