LISTEN: Alpine ON Air Episode #7

This week’s guest has a history that is tough to fit into a nutshell introduction. Larisa Yurkiw has had a whirlwind ski racing career that launched her from Owen Sound, Ontario to the top of the World Cup circuit and the Olympic Games. Just under a year ago, after her best season yet, Larisa made the decision to pivot from professional ski racing for the sake of preserving a healthy body long-term.

Larisa shares how she has coped with this transition, how her identity has been shaped, and where her entrepreneurial spirit came from.
