“This is a huge accomplishment by Elli and our community couldn’t be more proud of her,” says Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks. “We’ve watched her grow up and we’ll all be watching and supporting her as she takes on this next amazing challenge."
Terwiel learned to ski on the slopes of Sun Peaks, competing and earning the respect and support of community members, including Olympic Champion Nancy Greene Raine.
“I am thrilled for her,” says Nancy Greene Raine, director of skiing for Sun Peaks Resort. “She has worked very hard for many years, and this is just the first step. This will be a great experience for her.”
