BIOGRAPHY

I am a former alpine racer out of Greek Peak Mountain Resort and trained as a level 9 gymnast at Aero Gymnastics Academy, both located in central New York. I started both of these sports at the age of 4. Even at the beginning, the two sports were always getting in the way of each other, I would often have to skip a ski race for a gymnastics competition, and vice versa.

In the summer of 2012, I decided to combine my abilities from both of these sports and attended the Talent ID camp in Lake Placid, NY to try out aerial skiing. I immediately fell in love with it! Who knew that the two things that used to conflict the most in my life would come together so perfectly. I was later on selected to join the team. I began aerial skiing in the Summer of 2012, living in the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center to train with the Elite Aerial Development Program.

Last season, I was promoted from being a rookie of the team and joined some of my teammates on the NorAm tour.

SI NING CHAN SAYS

FIRST TRACKS
My first time on snow was when I was four years old at Greek Peak Mountain Resort in NY. I joined the resort’s alpine racing club in 2003 when I was 7 years old and started competing shortly after. In 2012, I switched over to aerials at the age of 16 and joined the EADP.

OFF THE SNOW

When I’m not skiing I love being outdoors. Especially during the summer, I love being outside just to enjoy the sun. You can usually find me swimming, biking, kayaking, or just laying outside and reading a book.
