Lev Ibson

Waitsfield, VT

Hello, my name is Lev Ibson and I am thirteen years old. I love sports whether it is mountain biking, swimming, lacrosse, soccer, etc and I have been skiing since I was three years old. Skiing is my favorite sport and I love it no matter the conditions. This will be my fourth year on the Mad River Free Ski Team. I have had so much fun and learned so much about myself while on the team. The Mad River Free Ski Team has shown me my love and commitment to skiing and the excitement it brings me to land a new trick. One of my favorite parts of the team is the butterflies you get in your stomach waiting for 3..2..1..drop countdown before your run on competition day. One of my big goals is to make NORAMS this upcoming season. Meeting this goal would help me so much in getting one step closer to my dream of becoming a pro skier.
