The VIS Aerial Skiing Development Program has a strong history of producing world cup champions, Olympic medallists and world champions for more than 20 years including Lydia Lassila, Alisa Camplin, Jacqui Cooper, Laura Peel, David Morris and Danielle Scott.
Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder, Lydia Lassila always wanted to become and Olympian and because of Aerial Skiing was able to achieve the dream.
“Growing up I dreamed of going to the Olympics and when I didn’t make it as a gymnast, I thought my dream was a lost opportunity. Being recruited into Aerial Skiing was a 2nd chance at fulfilling my childhood dream and I’m so grateful for the opportunity. It was challenging, always exciting and it exposed me to the spectacular world of winter sport. It’s been an epic ride - one that I will always treasure.” She said.
