Alice Merryweather, Renowned World Cup Skier, Decides to Hang Up Her Skis

In a social media post, Alice Merryweather announced her retirement from World Cup ski racing. The decision was not an easy one for the 27-year-old athlete, but after much grief, deliberation, anger, and acceptance, she decided to hang up her skis.

Throughout her career, Merryweather had many successful moments to be proud of. She became a Junior World Champion, a World Cup racer, and an Olympian. Despite facing multiple severe injuries and mental health battles during the COVID-19 crisis, she persevered and became a resilient athlete physically and mentally.

Merryweather’s decision to retire came after the Stifel US Ski and Snowboard Team did not fund her career in the upcoming season. However, she expressed gratitude for those who stood by her side throughout her journey and looked forward to opening up the next door in her life.
