Sophia’s Bio

Sophia Bisbee

My name is Sophia Bisbee, and I am a sixteen year old athlete. I have been skiing my entire life but only recently started my competing career in the year 2018. I am proud to say that Mad River Glen is my home mountain. This mountain is especially important to me not only because of the skills I’ve gained in this unique place, but also my best friends and the wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. I’m currently on the path of attending The Junior World Tour, which has been a meaningful goal of mine for at least two years. Although skiing is the activity I’m most passionate about, I am also interested in other things such as soccer, surfing, robotics, sailing, acting, listening, and playing music.
