24505356_1507931933.7219_funddescriptionMy career kicked off at Wachusett Mountain. Wachusett was where I hit my first gate and took my first run ever on skis.  Also Wachusett is where I competed in my first ski race, I might have missed every gate but I still count it. Lol I kid you not, it's the truth. Anyways, I started something bigger than  just a ski career, I started a hobby that I'm going to continue for rest of my life. I enjoy everyday, and every second I'm on the mountain. When I was young my mom would literally have to drag me off the mountain to go home. The atmosphere and good vibes on the mountain is like no other. As an early teen during the winter you could find me smashing plastic or in the terrain park at Wachusett Mountain. When I was 13 I started the weekend program at Franconia Ski Club. Cannon Mountain was the best mountain in my eyes. I wasn't worried about "the best training" or "best coaching", I wanted to ski at the mountain where I was going to have the most fun. By the time I was 16, I started the winter program for Franconia ski club becoming  a full time FIS athlete. 
 
2016-2017
 This past season I competed in over 40 races. I qualified for US Nationals, US Junior Nationals, and USSA Development Championships. I couldn't have done this without the love and support from both family and friends. Also  all the good people at Blizzard/Technica and Swix.

2017-2018

This Season started with a bang! I was invited to the USSA U19 Performance Series (NPS) being held at Copper and Vail the last week of November, first week of December. The goal of the NPS is to bring the country’s best U19 athletes together in a high level training and racing environment. I ended up with two good race finishes.

I have just qualified for US Nationals being held at Sunvalley, ID the middle of March with two other  series of races  at Snowbird, UT and Aspen/Highlands, CO. This next week I’m racing in the USSA Development Championships at Attitash and Cramore.

Where everything is last minute, there isn't much time to raise funds. Between the cost of travel, lodging, lift tickets and race fees, I need your help. Please contribute what you can.
Thank you for your help and continuing support for the 2018 race season.

Thank you,
Luke Hanlon
