Veronica Paulsen

Freeski Shredders Coach

Brief Bio Narrative: Veronica fell in love with skiing at Squaw Valley, California where she began participating actively in the sport of freestyle moguls in her early teens. She competed on the NorAm mogul tour for 5 years as well as US Ski Team Selections and the USSA National Freestyle Championships, where Veronica earned a 6th place finish in women’s dual moguls in 2014. Three seasons ago, Veronica transitioned to big mountain, and after only her first season was ranked 8th on the Americas Freeride World Qualifier Tour. She continues to compete in the Freeride World Qualifier competitions and hopes to one day focus on a film career in big mountain freeride skiing.

Personal Philosophy or Statement:

One of my favorite quotes is “Do something everyday that scares you.” by Eleanor Roosevelt.

In this sport, people often assume that the greatest skiers have no fear, this quote reminds me that it’s not about having no fear, but about not letting your fears stop you — and this is a skill that is helpful in every aspect of life!
