Profile Statement by Pat Sharples (World Cup Halfpipe Coach)

Becky is one of the UKs leading ladies on the British Freeski scene and on the World cup Halfpipe ski team! Over the last year she has been a regular on the podium at high profile events such as the Verbier Ride and the Brits 08. She's also the only British girl to qualify for the finals in World Cup Halfpipe.

Becky is busy all year around with her skiing. In the winter she is traveling the world to competitions and doing filming and photoshoots and in the summer she works on the Salomon Grom Freeski camps coaching all the up and coming kids and often gets special requests at freestyle camps for her to coach her students.

To add to her amazing list of credits Becky is a super nice girl and will go a long way in the sport she loves!

First skiing experience -

My next door neighbour took me to the Ski Village and gave me a lesson. Within a couple of goes they took me on the big slope when I couldn't even stop. Somehow I survived and wanted to go back for more!

Favourite ski experience -

Hard to pick out just one... all the powder days where I've had to use a snorkel!

Favourite resort -

Laax for the perfect park and Verbier for the good people

Any special skills outside of skiing -

Baking!

If I weren't skiing, I'd be...

World Champs, Japan. All the locals were super friendly and everything ran to schedule
