A hugely talented all-around racer who competes in all five disciplines, Marie-Michèle (“Mitch”) Gagnon made history in the 2014-15 season when she became the first Canadian to win a super combined World Cup race. She secured her first World Cup podium in slalom in 2012 and has developed into a consistent contender on the world stage. Gagnon placed ninth in the slalom at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games. In the 2015-16 season, Gagnon had two podium finishes. She claimed third-place in the Crans Montana, SUI slalom and placed first in an alpine combined race at Soldeu, AND. In the 2016-17 season, Gagnon finished in sixth-place at the World Championship alpine combined race and secured six top-ten finishes on the World Cup circuit. At the speed opener in Lake Louise in the 2017-18 season, Gagnon crashed in a downhill training run, resulting in a season-ending knee and shoulder injury. Look out for Mitch’s return to snow in 2018.
