Britt Richardson is quickly establishing herself as one of Canada’s top skiers, despite being among the younger athletes on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, as she enters her third season on the World Cup stage.
In her debut year of 2021-22, Richardson started three World Cup races and ranked second in the Nor-Am Cup final standing. She earned her first World Cup points with a 22nd-place giant slalom finish in Kranjska Gora, SLO.
Yet her sophomore World Cup season saw her continued rise, as the Canmore, Alberta native finished second in the Nor-Am GS standings and again earned points in Kranjska Gora with a 24th-place finish. At her first World Championships in 2023, Richardson won a bronze medal with Team Canada in the team parallel event in Courchevel-Meribel, FRA.
Ahead of her third season in 2023-24, Richardson spent time in South America, winning an August downhill on the South American Cup in La Parva Chile. Now, the Burke Mountain Academy graduate will strive towards more regular Top 30 World Cup finishes.
