Hello, my name is Cheyenne Brown. I am 22 years old from Donner Summit, California.
I grew up skiing all around Donner Ski Ranch chasing my brother down the slopes as soon as my foot would fit into a ski boot. Which is where my love for speed skiing started.
Before I went to college I was racing the FIS/ NorAm circuit with the Squaw Valley Ski team where I had success in Super G and Downhill. I was able to win the Schweitzer speed series 2 years in a row, 3 top 10’s in Lake Louise, Canada, and with those results secured my place in US Nationals 4 seasons in a row. I am currently a junior at Colorado Mountain College studying the Action sports industry and Ski/Snowboard Business, so basically I get to play all day. CMC is based out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado where I am fortunate enough to race the NCAA D1 circuit and still pursue my speed dreams. After the 2020-2021 season, I was top 30 in NCAA standings in both Slalom and GS. My goal for the upcoming season is to be in the top 15 for both events.
I have many goals long-term and short term and I am willing and able to work as hard as I can for them till I achieve them. I am still in pursuit of my dream of making the US speed team and I am so thankful for my college supporting me and helping me towards this goal every day. I hope to one day represent the US Ski Team on the speed world cup circuit.
Currently what is holding me back from my ski racing dreams is funding, as I do pay for all of my ski racing on my own. During the summer I work 3 jobs: a coffee shop, gym, and nannying, juggling workouts and online school to try and stay ahead so I don't fall behind during the winter months. I am so grateful for any help I receive from anyone. Any donation, no matter how big or small can make the difference in a ski season for me and is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams!
