Season Wrap Up

It was a wild and crazy season, that’s for sure! Estella started out the winter season in Steamboat, Colorado and finished the season in Lahti, Finland. In between, she visited South Korea, Slovenia, Norway, Italy, Austria and passed through Belgium and Poland. Ahhh, the life of a ski jumper.

The season was a whirlwind with plenty of highs including a new hill record in Steamboat, a Youth Olympics spot, and her first World Cup start. Overall, she finished strong and was able to claim a Top 30 position on the ICOC circuit, meeting her season goal.

Estella is back in Madison until early June and then will be off to the West for training. It’s a jam packed 10 weeks of normal life stuff…prom, finishing high school, taking AP exams, and figuring out which college to attend.
