ABOUT ABI

Growing up in the snowy mountains, Abi started skiing at the age of 2.

It wasn’t until she was a little older, at 10 years old, that she started Slopestyle skiing after following her brothers around the mountain and trying to jump off things that were bigger and better.

Abi loves the adrenaline rush she gets when she competes and puts down a great run, she also loves that she can remain stress-free during competitions and just enjoy the experience.

As a member of the NSW Institute of Sport, Abi competed in her first World Cup Halfpipe competition in 2019 where she placed 18th.

Abi also placed 3rd at the 2019 Australian New Zealand Cup in the Slopestyle competition and 4th in the Big Air.
