“I love having Nuun to keep me hydrated when I’m traveling for competition, crosstraining, and even when I’m on the hill.”
When Lorin was young, her family moved to Steamboat Springs, CO in order to give her and her brother better training in Alpine ski racing. After competing successfully in alpine, Lorin joined the newly started SSWSC telemark team for cross training. She immediately fell in love with the versatility of the sport. (Since then, the program has grown to 80 kids and has produced twelve national team members.)
After Lorin’s World Cup debut in the 07-08 season, she earned a spot on the National ‘A’ team and has become the most decorated US woman in telemark.
When she’s not competing, Lorin promotes telemark by bringing younger groups to the sport.
As a world-class athlete and as a mentor, Lorin believes that being a good example in the classroom is just as important as being successful on the hill. During the summer she runs a workout group three mornings a week called the Breakfast Club. It’s an all-inclusive way for kids to workout when they either can’t afford a gym or feel the environment is too intimidating. Lorin’s goal for the 2011 season is to win a World Cup race, and win an overall title in the Junior World Championships and a gold in the series.
Lorin will matriculate at Dartmouth this fall.
