Immigrant of the Day: Laurene Ross - Olympic Alpine Ski Racer

Rate this Entry
Canadian-born Laurene Ross competed for Team USA in the Alpine Skiing Ladies Downhill this week and tomorrow will begin in the Super-G event. Ross made her World Cup debut in 2010 and has been ranked near the top internationally since. In addition to being a champion skier, Ross is apparently an outstanding musician. From the US Ski Team bio on her:

A talented musician as well as a ski racer, Laurenne Ross is a four-discipline threat both on and off the snow, with incredible talent on violin, piano, guitar and vocals. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Ross cut her teeth at a small local hill but headed to the Rockies on weekends, where she raced her Dad (a former alpine racer) to the lodge.

OFF THE SNOW

It's all about rock climbing, playing music, knitting and drawing. If there's a microphone around and music playing, Ross is in on both the music and the microphone. She's spearheaded many a winter jam sessions on tour with teammates Mancuso, Cook, McKennis and Smith, which spurred the FIS to make a film about the band. Summertime is spent working on her home, which she bought at the opening of the 2012 season, as well as catching up on classes mostly art at the University of Oregon.
