On the Hunt For World Cup Starts with Foreste Peterson

by Ryan Collopy on February 13, 2020

Check out what Foreste has been up to and how her season has been going!

Q: So where did you grow up skiing?

A: Squaw Valley.

Q: What is your favorite discipline and why?

A: GS because there is no better feeling than linking a string of sweet GS turns together.

Q: How has this season been going so far? Are you on track for the goals you set out for yourself at the beginning of the season?

A: My season started really strong with a couple of Nor-Am podiums and a World Cup start at Killington. I, unfortunately, had some rough races at Burke after the New Year but I am still on track to go after a Nor-Am GS and slalom title, which I had set out myself this season.


Q: So where do you see yourself in five years?

A: If not competing on the World Cup, then I see myself working in the ski racing world while also pursuing big mountain skiing goals.

Q: If you could give yourself one piece of advice when you first started racing what would it be?

A: Compare yourself less to those around you and focus more on what you can do to better yourself.


Q: Can you walk us through your pre-race routine and describe how you mentally prepare?

A: My pre-race routine typically includes a morning warm-up (jog, dynamic warmup, core, and foam rolling), oats and coffee for breakfast, a couple of free ski warmup runs before and after inspection, and some visualization. I try to keep things as simple as possible from a mental standpoint. Honing in on one technical focus and one tactical focus seems to work the best.

Q: Finally, we have to know, if you could be any part of a burger what would it be and why?

A: I would be the pickle because it's sweet and salty

Sync Neckies

Sync's race suits are the absolute best, and the matching neckies looks great, and are a great way to keep both neck and face warm on cold days!

Kellen Blue Adult Race Suit

Sync race suits are the absolute best - Exceptional quality, with fast and sleek design. The padding size and locations are perfect, and the suit fits perfect. The superb quality of the suit's material should provide many seasons of wear.

Shelter Ski Parka Rocks!!!!

Had to update my Ski Racer's coat for next year. This was an awesome edition. He can't wait until the snow flies. Thanks again


The material you have chosen is excellent, but the sewing matching from arms to the body (shoulder ) is done very poorly and suggests quality control is not in place.
I can send pics if you would like.

Great shirt

Super comfortable, breathes and wicks well, and the fit is great. I like that it forms to your body and flexes with your movements. This shirt is great for working out, wearing around the house, or out on the town.
