Voss will be representing both her hometown of Port Moody and Hemlock Ski Club when she hits the slope this weekend at the Whistler Cup. She has only been skiing for six years. However, in the junior U16 category, she continues to outperform everyone’s expectations. This year, Voss’s home ski mountain (Hemlock) did not open due to lack of snow. She has had to travel every weekend to find snow to train on to be able to qualify for this international race.
