Sally Steeves

INSTINCT SKIS - KILLER ATHLETE
Sally is a Rossland local who started skiing by following her ski patrol parents around Red, learning their secret stashes and setting up the occasional bamboo line. She started competing in junior big mountain freeski competitions at age 11. In her first competition, the head judge said that she would be “a threat to the future of freeskiing” and she took that to heart, winning 16 competitions over the next 6 years.
Her biggest highlights include winning the North American Freeksi Championships twice at Snowbird and Crystal Mountain. Sally was in the Red Freeski Academy her entire highschool career, growing from a young straggler to a team leader by her final year. After high school, she moved to Calgary to pursue an electrical engineering degree and took a hiatus from competitive skiing. During that time she helped coach the Red Freeski Team when they competed at Lake Louise. She also has had the joy of coaching (and being coached by) her little brother, who is one of the most passionate and determined skiers she knows.
Now that she is graduated and working as an engineer for BC Hydro, Sally is trying to embrace being a weekend warrior and has competed in (and won) her first two competitions in over 6 years.
