ERIN MIELZYNSKI

Skiing started for Erin at the age of 2 on both snow and water. In 2008, she made the Canadian National Alpine team and decided to focus on alpine skiing and the Olympics. Erin has three Olympic Games under her belt and has stood on the podium 3 times at the World Cup level, becoming the first Canadian woman in 41 years to win a World Cup slalom race. Specializing in the technical events, Erin trains and races in many parts of the world, chasing winter and racing on the World Cup circuit. Erin uses her summer training to seek new adventures; summiting peaks to reach target heart rates, planning bike routes to alleviate the monotony of training and trying new activities for different training modalities whether that includes paddle boarding, surfing and trail running. In her down time, she loves to get outside and explore. Nature is her way to unwind, shut off and become more present. Erin loves to look down and see that her phone has no service, whether that is at the top of a mountain or in an off-grid cabin. An animal and nature lover to the core, Erin has to continually find the balance between intensely competing and slowing down to enjoy where the journey takes her. Whether it is reading beside a river or running up a hill at max heart rate, she has to find a way to get outside and breathe the fresh air.
