As a western Canadian based athlete, Andi Naude is a unique member of the of the Canadian Mogul World Cup team comprised entirely of French Canadian athletes.
Naude grew up in Penticton, BC, with a love of skiing that developed quickly and made her a fierce competitor. By 2012 and only 16, Naude was named to the national team. At the same age she would compete in her first FIS World Cup event.
One of her proudest moments came in 2016 when she helped produce a Canadian podium sweep at the FIS World Cup in Calgary with Chloé Dufour-Lapointe in first and Justine Dufour-Lapointe in second. That day, Naude finished in third place and was thrilled with the idea of possibly inspiring other girls from the West Coast who may want to pick up mogul skiing one day like her.
Naude continues to try and push the sport and increase the degree of difficulty for jumps. Over the last couple of years, Naude was one of the few women to compete with a backfull on the top air.
In her spare time, Naude stays active by road biking and rock climbing. She also enjoys baking and playing with her cats.
