Freestyle Canada has developed a specific ranking system for the Toyo Cup, which will determine the most consistent performer overall, across all of our disciplines, in the Canada Cup Series. At the end of the season, the Toyo Cup, along with a $5000 education bursary will be awarded to the top male and female freestyle skier that finish with the highest point totals overall.
The bursaries will be split between the top 3 accordingly: $2500, $1500, $1000 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd

I chose moguls because I liked the technical aspects of it. You can always learn more and get better.
I like kart racing and playing soccer.
I won the Canadian selection in Apex. It happened because I had a great training camp before with the team and I was having fun skiing the course.
I was in Killington and I had a really good first two days of training. On the first day of competition, at the end of my qualification run, I landed the bottom jump with a little too much weight on my left leg and my ACL tore.
I train in the gym and do physio every week.
I won’t compete this winter; I decided to not take any risk and take my time to have a good recovery. I’ll probably just ski and go to the gym as much I can to be in the best possible shape for the first training camp in May.
Because I’ve decided to take a year to get back into the best shape I can, I want to be back performing at a high level straight when I get back in the gate.
I would like to be on the World Cup tour full time in the next 2-3 years.
