01 GAMES
I really love the way playing games like cribbage keeps me present and allows me to spend time with my family and teammates.

02 LIP BALM
In the cold climates I go to, I end up with windburn on my face or chapped lips, so I come prepared.

03 TRAVEL SEWING KIT
I make sure to have at least a needle and thread with me to patch up any accidental tears.

04 SLIPPERS
I’m always cold, no matter where I am or how warm the house is. I love having toasty feet, and these slippers help.

Discipline Freestyle Skiing – Halfpipe
Age 25
Hometown Comox, B.C.
Training Base Calgary and Cardrona, New Zealand

Cassie Sharpe is ready to wow PyeongChang crowds with her groundbreaking switch cork 720 trick – she was the first woman to ever land one in competition. Her season started with a gold-dusted bang, when the Vancouver Island-native, who grew up skiing the somewhat smaller slopes of Mount Washington, placed first at a World Cup event in New Zealand. The Olympic hopeful knows competing in Korea will be a whole different half-pipe: “Everybody’s watching.” But Sharpe and her training team have a decidedly business-as-usual motto when it comes to performing on the world stage: Just do what you’ve already done.
