Olympic skier, Megan McJames, first got on skis at the age of two. Growing up in Park City Utah (home of the 2002 Olympics), she grew to love being in the mountains and fresh powder skiing. She first started competitive skiing at the age of 8, learning that the harder she worked the further her passion for skiing could take her.
Megan decided to go to a Winter Sports high school so that she could study in the summer and focus on her skiing and training in the Winter. Her dedication and talent eventually got the attention of the US Ski team and she was recruited to join the team.
As a member of the US Ski Team, Megan has participated in races all over the world. She was the NorAm super combined champion this year, top 15 in the World Cup, a member of the World Championship Team, and a U.S Olympic team member in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.
In addition to her dreams of winning a gold medal, Megan also has a passion for baking and dreams of one day opening a bakery in Park City, like the ones she has seen in ski villages around the world.
