My name is Laurie Taylor and I am a skier on the British World Cup Slalom Team. Last season was my most successful ever, securing my first top 10 result in World Cup and ending the season ranked 33rd in the World Cup standings. My goal is to push on with this trajectory into the top 15 and challenge for podiums.

I started skiing when I was 6 years old on a family holiday. From this moment I was hooked and at age 9 I joined the Aldershot ski race club (dryslope skiing). I was keen and wanted to get as many runs as possible! It wasn’t long before I started joining in with other clubs (Bromley and Southampton) for more training.

When I was 10, after a dry slope camp, I was invited to train at the British Ski Academy (BSA) by Malcolm Erskine. I skied with BSA for 10 years based in Les Houches, France and it was a home away from home. During this time (between 12 and 16) my family and I moved to New Zealand and trained with the Queenstown Alpine ski team during the Southern Hemisphere winters and continued training there after moving back to England.

I have always worked hard to help fund my training, washing pots in the BSA kitchen, tuning skis and working at Browns ski Shop in NZ.

I am now on the World Cup Slalom team preparing for the 2025 Salbach World Championships and the 2026 Milan/Courtina Olympics.

Since I first got a camera I have loved filming and making videos. My passion for film making combines with my passion for skiing and I document my Journey with a YouTube series “Behind the Brits”. I like to capture work that goes on behind the scenes, the nature we see and the fun we have (as well as the inevitable lows). Check out my channel and subscribe. If you are interested in sponsoring some videos get in touch.
