Roz likes to listen to some fun music! Does she listen when she is practicing and on the slopes? If so, what is she listening to?!
I definitely listen to music on the hill as it keeps me motivated. During practice, I have a playlist of hip hop and rap. Remixes by Girl Talk and Basement Jaxx are some of my faves. Recently, during competition I’ve been playing ‘The game needs me' by Dyme Def on repeat because it has an amazing beat.
How do you get yourself psyched up for a competition?
Competition psyches me up. Once I’m in the air and skiing, I don’t need anything. Music helps me get focused.
Roz, you are wicked ambitious taking on college and a skiing career! How is it going? How do you balance school work and skiing while excelling at both?
I love skiing but I also love school, so the balance is essential for me. Going to Quest University in Squamish works perfectly for my schedule. I am able to take December through March as well as July and August off school to ski, giving me the best of both worlds. During the fall and spring, I stay super organized to maintain that 4.0 but also get my body as strong as possible. I’m not going to lie: It is still a trade off. For example, the best training in New Zealand is in early September and I’m back at school. But for me, I need both in my life.
