After hiding her illness for four years, she decided to take a break from the 2015-2016 season and treat her eating disorder. She regained her joie de vivre and health, then relaunched her athletic career with a victory in her first Nor-Am Cup competition and another overall title.

About India

Getting into the Sport: She went cross-country skiing long before she discovered alpine skiing. In fact, in cross-country skiing, she always built jumps. She started alpine skiing competitions at 10 and ski cross competitions at 13. It was at the age of 15 that she decided to devote herself to ski cross. Beyond freestyle skiing:She enjoys sketching the places she visits. She also expresses her creativity through the restoration of furniture and pottery. When at home, she tries to cross-country ski as often as possible and says that she is happy in the mountains, climbing, hiking, short or long, or mountain biking. In the summer, she works full time for a local painter. She is considering training as an apprentice as a painter and decorator, pursuing studies in interior design or university studies in wildlife biology. Clara Hughes is one of his greatest sources of inspiration. After reading Clara’s biography, she decided to take better care of herself and take a break from competition. She volunteers at local schools to educate young people about eating disorders and mental illnesses. She collects postcards and would one day like to make a mural of them.
