Our youngest sponsored skier, whose huge achievements so far have set her up as one to watch!
15 year old Millie is a force to be reckoned with on the slopes. A slopestyle skier, a quick glance at Millie’s competition results shows just how much she has already achieved and we’re sure there are big things to come!
Millie first fell in love with the sport aged 4, when she went on a family ski holiday to the USA and was taken down her first slope by her dad, a ski instructor. In her own words she took to it ‘like a duck to water’, and has been hooked ever since. Skiing as a youngster with the Summerhayes sisters, Katie and Molly, Millie has surrounded herself with world class skiers who have played a big part inspiring her success.
The 2015/2016 season was fantastic for Millie: 1st Overall Female in the Salomon Air Attack, 1st U16 and 2nd Overall Female in the Jibworx National Rail Jam Rounds 2 and 3, 2nd Overall Female in The Brits Invitational London, and 3rd U16 Slopestyle and 5th Overall in the British Championships (LAAX), and that’s only a few of Millie’s achievements throughout the 15/16 season! No doubt she will be kicking up a storm on those slopes again this season.
Millie was also recently featured on BBC’s Get Inspired, reviewing the UK’s snow sports facilities.
Like most 14 year olds, Millie loves hanging out with her friends and family, and her instagram and twitter feed both show the perfect balance of normal teenage life alongside being one of Britain’s rising ski stars. Millie is also a watersports fan, taking the opportunity to practice some summer (water) skiing.
With Millie’s sights set on representing Britain in the Winter Olympic Games and the X Games, we’re certain that Millie has a bright future ahead and we’re incredibly pround and excited to be supporting her on her journey to the top.
