Elise Loescher started ski jumping with NYSEF at the age of 13 but has been alpine skiing since she was 2-years-old. An athlete at the Northwood School, Loescher’s training program has been quite different than most nordic athletes. She has trained like a ski racer almost all her life. Since the first time she launched off a ski jump, Elise loved the feeling of flying through the air. What motivates her to stay in the sport is “that unique feeling of adrenaline you get from flying, the people that I have met, and the places I have been able to travel.”
Her coach, Colin Delaney, has played a large role in her career as a ski jumper.
