Name: Ava Sunshine avajemison

My name is Ava Sunshine Jemison. I grew up in the Vail Valley and raced for SSCV before attending Burke Mountain Academy. From there, I made the US Ski Team and recently won the Nor-Am Overall Title, Alpine Combined Title, and a World Juniors Medal. When I’m not on the road I live in Encinitas, California where I love to surf and enjoy the warm weather. I love duel events and am super excited to compete on the WPST!
