Kelsey Serwa started skiing as soon as she could walk. With her grandfather, Cliff Serwa co-founding Big White Ski Resort in the early 1960′s, it was inevitable that Kelsey would lead a life greatly influenced by the skiing community.
From the age of six, Kelsey progressed from level to level in the Alpine world and in 2008, was named to the Women’s National Development Team for Canada. Embracing opportunities, the avid alpine racer made the decision to try something new and transitioned to ski cross in 2009. She took the Ski Cross World Cup Tour by storm, making a name for herself instantaneously and earning the prestigious “FIS Rookie of the Year” award.
With an entire community of family, friends, teachers, and sponsors supporting her, Kelsey has earned 18 World Cup podium finishes, is an Olympic gold and silver medalist, World Champion, 2-time X-Games gold medalist, 2-time Olympian, 2-time National Champion, 2-time South American Champion, and is a university student. Kelsey is the only Triple Crown winner, encompassing victories at the Olympics, World Championships, and X Games. She is also the only ski cross athlete in the world to win multiple Olympic medals.
