Irian’s Bio

Irian Adii

My name is Irian Adii, and I am a 15-year-old freestyle skier at Smugglers Notch Resort. Skiing is my main passion, and I have been competitively skiing since 2015. Through my ski club, I have entered such a loving community, and met many of my best friends. I have learned a lot about pushing myself out of my comfort zone and taking responsible risks. Along with Freeride, this year I have also joined my schools alpine team in hopes to sharpen up my technique. One of my main goals for the season would be to qualify to participate in the North American Junior Freeride Championships and travel with my team to Crystal Mountain in Washington State. When I am not skiing I also enjoy playing soccer, listening to music and hanging out with friends.
