Ali Nullmeyer is synonymous with a winning attitude and perseverance. Growing up skiing at Georgian Peaks, Ali is now a leading member of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team and is a role model for skiers across Canada.
Ali made her World Cup debut at the 2017 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland. After a double knee injury sidelined her for 11 months in 2018, she worked hard to return stronger than ever and enjoyed a breakout season in 2021-22, finishing 11th overall in the World Cup slalom standings with three Top 10 finishes, headlined by a 5th place slalom finish in Zagreb, Croatia. Ali made her Olympic debut at Beijing 2022, where she skied to a 21st-place finish in slalom. Most recently, she placed 14th in slalom in both Levi, Finland and Killington, USA.
Congratulations Ali on your accomplishments and for showcasing Ontario on the world stage!
