Lindsay Debou

Lindsay, who was born in North Vancouver, began skiing in Whistler when she was three years old and later became a member of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club.  She started alpine racing in the early 1990s and in 2001 decided to pursue other interests, such as travelling the world to places such as Australia and New Zealand.  Upon her return she completed her degree in psychology at the University of Victoria in 2006 and plans to pursue a Masters of Education in counselling psychology.  

In 2009, Lindsay joined the Canadian Para-Alpine Alpine Ski Team as a guide for an athlete with a visual impairment and immediately fell in love with this new role in ski racing.  She feels fortunate to be a part of the 2010 Paralympic Games and vows to do her best to make Canada proud.  She already has two IPC World Cup events under her belt and with no less than 3 gold medals and 6 silver medals with para-skier Vivian Forest.
