Learning to ski at the age of nine, Cassie had a late start compared to many of her fellow competitors. With a drive for perfection and a love of skiing, she propelled herself into the freestyle ski community. Getting her start in slopestyle skiing at Mount Washington on Vancouver Island, she fell in love and dedicated her ski career toward halfpipe in 2012. Cassie grew up riding with her two brothers, who pushed her out of her comfort level every weekend. Now being one of the most progressive women in halfpipe skiing, we can look back and see exactly where she got it from. Having been a member of the Canadian National Halfpipe ski team for five years, she has won two X Games gold medals, multiple Dew Tour medals and is the two-time consecutive Crystal Globe winner, as well as being the current Olympic Gold medalist.
