Hi, my name is Cheyenne Brown. I am 24 years old and from Donner Summit, California. I have been skiing since my mom could fit my foot into a ski boot but I have been racing since I was 14 years old.
I grew up chasing my brother down the mountain at Donner Ski Ranch, just trying to keep up, eventually, he was the one trying to keep up with me! My love for going fast quickly grew and my parents signed me up for the Budder Werner program down the street from my house where my love for competition and racing was born.
I currently ski for Team Palisades Tahoe in Olympic Valley and I am in pursuit of the US Ski Team. My goal is to represent the US Team on the women's speed World Cup circuit and go to the 2026 Winter Olympics. I will be racing the FIS NorAm circuit and Europa Cup Circuit for the 2023-2024 season.
After graduating High school I was unable to sustain skiing on the FIS/ NorAM circuit due to limited funding. I decided to go to college and pursue my academic dreams and race on the NCAA circuit at a fraction of the cost. Since graduating college, I have refound my love, passion and fire for speed skiing but the path to success in ski racing comes with financial obstacles. I currently work 2-3 jobs in the summer to pay for my ski racing dreams (coffee shop baker, gym attendant, and nannying). In order to bridge the gap and be able to focus more purely on skiing I am reaching out to the community to ask for support. Every contribution no matter how much is greatly appreciated and will go towards training/ racing expenses, equipment and other racing costs.
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. This upcoming season I hope to win a Downhill or Super G Noram Title and with the season already underway i am confident in reaching my goals and excited for what is to come.
I am so grateful for any help I receive from anyone. Any donation, no matter how big or small can make a difference in a ski season for me and is greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams!
