JULIA MURRAY

Sport: Ski Cross
Olympics: 2010
Hometown: Whistler
Favourite Olympic Moment: On the day of the race once I was done racing, heading up to the stands to hug the friends and family that came out for support. These were the people who always supported me in the past, so to have the moment in the dumping snow to hug them all was priceless. A close second was walking into the closing ceremonies with the whole team, realizing that I had just lived the Olympic dream I had had from the age of 7. One more: getting signed into the Olympic village and running up to our rooms for the 2 weeks to find a big package of letters from people all around the country wishing me luck! So cool.
What a day on the mountain with me will be like: I'm always up the mountain for a good time. Whether it's showing you my favourite powder patches I've found over my lifetime of growing up in Whistler, or simply making some sweet turns on groomers getting you more comfortable on your skis; I'm happy to be experiencing one of my favourite pass times with you. I love being up there, having some laughs and getting to know you; kids and adults alike.

Kristi Richards

Sport: Freestyle Mogul Skiing
Olympics: Torino 2006, Vancouver 2010
Hometown: Summerland, BC
Favourite Olympic Moment: Both Olympics presented epic moments, and each moment was very profound in my life. At the 2006 Olympics I was the first woman out of the gate on contest day, on the first day of the Games. It felt like I was opening the Games. Everything came to a calm as I stood on top of the run… I could see my family in the crowd at the bottom, and I knew that i had nothing to lose. It was the moment that I had trained so hard for, I was already standing in the gate as an Olympian, and all of the hard work was behind me. The only thing left to do was ski. 2010 was very different… we had so many more factors to deal with, like the mass media frenzy, the pressure of the hometown crowd and the Cypress weather. I stood in the gate with the confidence from my preparation and a knowingness that I had a winning run up my sleeve. I have never felt so ready. I landed my first back flip on the top air and started gaining speed in the middle section. The rain saturated moguls started to just mush out underneath me and I caught an edge… in a split second I was down, and my dreams of Olympic Gold crushed. I decided that I still wanted to finish my run, as I had a jump to perform that no other woman had ever landed in the Olympics. As I collected my gear, it was the cheer and support from the crowd that lifted me to my feet and gave me the strength to perform the best trick of my life.
Why you love Whistler: : The mountain is so versatile, giving lots of options in any condition. It was the big mountains that drew me to the coast from the Okanagan, and it is the big mountains that will make me stay.
