The first time I ever saw Dara Howell ski was a little less than four years ago. She was being coached by Sarah Burke up at Momentum Ski Camps in Whistler Blackcomb.
She was absolutely slaying with huge 450 disasters on and Sarah couldn’t have been prouder or more stoked for her young pupil and fellow countryman.
She is beyond proud of you today, Dara! #CelebrateSarah #Olympics

We also would like to wish former camper Yuki Tsubota all the best after her crash during this morning’s competition. Conditions were slow and even after pinning it at the jump, she came up short. Recent news is that she has suffered a broken jaw. We wish her a quick recovery.
