M E E T P A U L A !
Hailing from Prior Lake, Minnesota, Paula found her passion for ski racing at the famed Buck Hill Ski Club. In 2018, while attending the University of Vermont and working towards a major in Biology, Paula qualified for the Killington World Cup Slalom. Placing 17th at Killington, Paula went on to claim four more Top 20 World Cup Slalom finishes. Due to last year's tremendous season, Paula has been invited to the US Ski Team and looks forward to continuing her momentum this winter!
We caught up with Paula on the road, in the midst of her busy training regimen -
What is your first memory on skis?
"I remember tagging along with my mom when she taught ski lessons (she was an instructor at Buck Hill) and I'd help her teach kids how to get up after they had fallen down. With both of my parents being part-time ski instructors, Buck Hill was really our second home on the weekends. Most of the employees knew my siblings and me by name.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
"I am always looking forward to exploring new places, but mostly, I'm looking forward to returning to Killington for the World Cup - the atmosphere and fans there are one of a kind. "
Besides racing at Killington, what is your connection to Vermont?
"I attend University of Vermont as a Biology major (not finished yet - taking this year off to ski!), and my boyfriend went to Green Mountain Valley School. Both connections helped spark my love for Vermont."
We heard our Strawberry Fields Alpine Neckwarmer was your good luck charm last season. Why does Skida speak to you?
"I love Skida because it was started by a skier at a small Vermont ski academy and it's grown into a company that is known and loved across the ski community. Plus, the prints are so unique and they're the coziest hats and neckwarmers out there."
What does The Paula Project mean to you?
"The Paula Project captures the 'it takes a village' mentality. The Paula Project represents people coming together to support me and my goals as an athlete. It fosters a community that shares my love for skiing."
