ABOUT ME: I was born into a ski family, father and mother were both skiers and ski coaches. So I don’t remember when I started skiing. I started taking part in ski lessons and training when I was nine years old. I was a student athlete between 18 and 23 and reached the International competition level. I was part of the Estonian national team for the 2009-2010 season racing about 20 world cup races. Since 2011, I have been coaching adult skiers and giving ski lessons in schools.
