ABOUT JASPER

Jasper started skiing when he was 10 years old after a family friend suggested he might enjoy it.

He now trains with the Thredbo Ski Racing Club with his coach, three-time Olympian, Craig Branch.

Jasper's favourite part about competition day is being in the start area before the race and joking around with his friends.

Most recently, Jasper won silver at the SSA Ski Cross Championships, he achieved the highest ranked combined results in the 2018 U18 National FIS Championships in Giant Slalom and Slalom, and he was a named member of the U16 National Team for the Whistler Cup.
