Avital Shimko started making waves in 2015 with a silver medal at the FIS Junior World Championships. She went on to find success at all levels of competition, skiing in her first World Cups and landing the NorAm title in 2018.
What is your favorite memory as a competitor?
My first World Cup at Deer Valley under the lights was super special. I had my family there, and I saw some old coaches there from when I was a young one. Brought tears to my eyes to see them 8 years later with all the success I have had.
What are your go-to travel items?
Games! You always need to travel with games because who knows where you will get stuck? I also always travel with a coffee mug & peanut butter packs!
