Pam began skiing in Schladming, Austria at the age of three.

Fuelled by the desire to be faster than her older brother, a love of speed was obvious from an early age and her talent saw her win the Scottish Championships aged 9. The following year she qualified for the British children’s team.

Having been a fixture of the British Alpine team for the last 9 years, she decided on a change and recently made the switch to Freestyle. The 2011-2012 season will be Pam’s first in Ski-X.

After missing out on the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Pam is aiming to compete at the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia. She began competing in World Cup events in 2012 and is eager to race again.
