Biography

http://www.katiesummerhayes.co.uk

At 6 years old Katie Summerhayes learned to ski on the artificial slope at Sheffield and soon discovered her love for Freestyle skiing. At the age of 15 Katie was thrilled to be invited to the 2011 FIS World Championships in the USA; here she took part in the Halfpipe and Slopestyle events. This was the first time that Slopestyle had been included and Katie was determined to go. With a fantastic 11th place in Slopestyle (only just missing out on the finals) and 14th in the Halfpipe these results were a great achievement for her first major competition.

Summerhayes took fourth place at the 2013 World Championships in Norway, following on from a successful year on the World Cup circuit where she has already achieved a Silver medal in Switzerland.

She trains all year round on the dry slopes and indoor slopes of the UK and she attends regular trampoline coaching and fitness sessions. Mountain snow time is taken whenever possible and when her studies allow.
