Name: Stef Fleck

Stef grew up racing for the Whistler Mountain Ski Club before competing on the Canadian National Team for 4 years. She took a brief hiatus from Dh and Sg to attend college at CU Boulder where she was a three-time All-American, Two-Time National Collegiate All-Academic Ski Team and she was CU’s nominee for the Elite 90 Award at the NCAA Championships, given to the skier with the highest GPA at each of the NCAA’s 90 national championships. After three years at school Stef decided to put her academics aside for a season to compete on the World Cup circuit in Dh and SG in an attempt to qualify for the Beijing Olympics. After this year she will continue her academics and also pursue her ski racing goals in Europe. Stef has always loved ski racing and this season opened her eyes to racing in Europe and she has the pleasure of doing it alongside her long-time friend and competitor Trish Mangan. Nothing motivates Stef more than her younger sister Katie who always sees the positives in life and continues to chase her dreams despite any setbacks. This is Stefs first Pro Race and she’s a little bit nervous for the jumps but hopefully her speed training pays off!
