Maïa first started skiing by being towed behind a snowmobile on Christopher Lake in Saskatchewan. This soon developed into weekend road trips to COP (Canada Olympic Park) and Christmas breaks spent in Whistler. Maïa quickly fell in love with the sport and spent as much time as she could on snow. She then eventually got brought on to the BC Development Mogul Team for one season, followed by two years on the Alberta Mogul Team where she kick-started her competitive mogul skiing career. 

Maïa then made the National team in 2018 at 16 years old, and this will be her 4th year on the national team. For Maïa, looking back on her career so far has been a good way to reflect on how she’s developed as an athlete and as a person. The team environment has allowed Maïa to move from NorAms to the World Cup level, but also has shaped the young athlete into the person she is today. Maïa has nothing but excitement for what the future holds!
