Williston, VT

Hey, I’m Mac. I’m 13 years old and I love to be outside. You would find me playing any sport and being in nature. I love to hike, play soccer and play lacrosse. But my passion is skiing! I ski for Smugglers Notch Ski and Snowboard Club and have been skiing with them since I was 8. My first memory of skiing with my club was my first competition at 9 years old. I crashed. At first I hated competitions but I wanted to do better, so I did another and got my first podium, 2nd place! I love competing in IFSA and the environment of the ski community.
