Evie Johnson – Member of the Snowsports Club

What has been your involvement in sport to date?
I have been a keen skier since being first put on skis at 3/4 years old. I was lucky enough to do a ski season as an 8 year old, meaning I got the chance to massively improve my skiing and be in the mountains for 6 months. From the same age as I started skiing, I also started horse riding. This has been a huge passion and part of my life and led me to compete at national level in Show Jumping.

How did you first get involved in Snowsports at NTU?
I joined Snowsports as a keen fresher who was looking to meet a group of like-minded people. I was also initially persuaded by the crazy Christmas ski trip to the French alps but from there I also attended socials, and more recently the Freestyle training sessions that take place each week.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the Snowsports Club?
I love being around a group of people who share the same passion as me - being around them all the time has only made me more obsessed with a sport that I already loved!

What has been your highlight so far?
I've got to say it's pretty tough to pick just one after having been on numerous trips! I think it's got to be on one of the Easter ski trips where we had bluebird skies with fresh powder so made fresh tracks in the untouched snow, with a group of people who get just as stoked from the adrenaline. There's no better feeling!

What would you say to others to encourage them to get involved in a Sports Club at NTU?
I'd tell anyone to give it a go! Try to find something you're passionate about but if you're unsure just try something new whether it be skiing, boxing or pole dancing - what have you got to lose!
