National Ski Team Background:
Jasmine is entering her first year on the Junior National Team having progressed through the development pathway. In 2019-20 she was part of Nordiq Canada’s prospects program and took advantage of training alongside National Ski Team members at a number of camps throughout the year. She is anxious to build off her experience representing Canada at the 2019 and 2020 World Junior Championships while competing in her first full season with the National Junior Team.
Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing:
Living in Rossland, Jasmine alpine skied for as long as she can remember. As a young child she would cross country ski at Nancy Green Summit (ungroomed trails) with her family. She loved getting outside and find a cabin to ski to. As Jasmine got older, she was focused on figure skating It wasn’t until she was 11 when she joined level 4 cross-country skiing. Jasmine started joining team practices during the summer months, and loved dryland training. She joined as a junior racer and has been skiing competitively ever since. Jasmine was inspired to ski by her brother, Rémi, who really enjoyed developing as a member of the local team, and as well as taking some cross-country ski lessons. As she progressed with her fellow junior racers in the area, she fell in love with racing. Racing well, she knew this was the sport for her. Jasmine loves training all year and being athletic has always been a very big part of her lifestyle. She dreams to represent Canada at the Olympics, and be successful on the World Cup. Jasmine had her first taste of the Olympic experience while skiing for Canada at the Youth Olympic Winter Games in 2020.
Jasmine loves participating in many sports and outdoor activities. Growing up in a mountain town, she loves downhill skiing and mountain biking as well as hiking. She played soccer for a few years before stopping due to injury and figure skated for nine years. She also loves being outdoors and camping and kayaking. Other than sports, Jasmine loves being creative. She likes to paint and draw frequently. She is always trying to improve her skills and to find a deeper love for art. Jasmine graduated high school in 2020, and is going to attend university in the fall of 2021. She is unsure of where she will go and what she will study, but probably follow her brother’s path to an NCAA school in the United States. Jasmine has always been very interested in biology and environmental studies as well as anything to do with sports and wellness. She loves travelling and hopes to see much more of the world as her life continues.
