NAME: Jacqueline Pollard
BIRTHDAY: 29 May 1997
HOME: Alta, Ut
DISCIPLINE: Big Mountain Skiing or Freeriding
My name is Jacqueline Pollard. I am a 22-year-old student majoring in Biology at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the winter I devote my time to skiing with friends and competing on the Freeride World Tour. While during the summer I work as a raft guide for Holiday Expeditions, in Green River, Utah. Most importantly when not busy I love to spend time with my cats.
I ski for the moment of pure happiness.
I recharge my batteries for my next challenge by eating lots of peanut butter and taking cat naps.
My favorite quote is “if there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water,” by Loren Eiseley.
This quote resonates with me because water shapes most things on the earth and it allows me to keep doing the things I love.
I conquer difficult situations by keeping a positive mental attitude.
If I am having fun and enjoying myself my performance will hopefully reflect my love for skiing.
If I am not skiing I like to be outside adventuring and hanging out with friends.
I like to sing songs and dance around. I also have to remember to breath, have fun, and know I am getting to do something that I love.
