A BIT ABOUT ME...

My name is Laurie Taylor, I am 19 years old and I am a professional Alpine Ski Racer. My ultimate goal is to compete at the highest level in World Cup Competitions as well as the Olympics.

I started skiing when I was 6 years old on a family holiday. From that moment I loved skiing and this led to me joining the Aldershot Ski Race Team when I was 9. I was very keen and wanted to get as many runs as possible on the training courses. It wasn’t long before I started joining in with other clubs (Bromley and Southampton), as well, to get more training. I went from coming nearly last to getting podiums within my first season.

When I was 10, I was invited to train at the British Ski Academy (BSA) by Malcolm Erskine, which is based in Les Houches, France. I have been skiing with BSA each European season since and I have also spent four season racing in New Zealand with the Queenstown Alpine Ski Team (QAST). To help fund this, I wash dishes in the BSA kitchen. I also help the caretaker of the Otago Ski Lodge, where I stay in New Zealand and I tune peoples skis.

Currently I am in the British U21 Ski Team and I have received a silver Olympic passport.

I completed my A-level equivalents in November 2012 and I am now taking time out to ski full time to realise my dreams.
