It's the nature of the beast, playing sports on the ski team and how competitive all of us are. I want to beat everybody's time.
My parents never pushed me to ski race. It was my choice and something I really wanted to do. I would have rebelled if they had pushed me, and I wouldn't have had the same passion.
I don't do ski racing to be famous.
I feel very confident in my skiing. I know I have a good chance to win any race I start.
I think it is important to let your kids have independence and ownership. Let your kids do what they have a passion for.
I've never liked the idea of working for other people.
When I grew up, I had a lot of fun ski racing with my friends. We pushed each other, and this made it easier to work hard.

I started playing around with GoPros on my own to get some cool footage. But it's actually become a big training tool for my team and me.
I work a lot with my ski sponsor, Head, to develop new technologies.
I'm an athlete, so I'm very interested in making the sport as safe as possible - just for my own career longevity.
I'm fine with being a little bit of an instigator.
Ski racing is probably the least guaranteed sport out there. It's really rare when the favorites win.
