Constance Lay, 22, hasn’t missed a gate yet! With two student championship titles to her name, the downhill skier slaloms between the slopes, the classroom—Lay is in her second year at Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA—, and a position as a ski instructor at nearby resort Alpe-d’Huez.

All this is made possible by Lay’s sense of organization, her passion for skiing, and the special arrangements in place for elite athletes at the school. So, what does the future hold for Constance? Hopefully, developing sporting goods: Her ultimate dream is to apply her engineering skills to ski design. Right now, however, she’s focused on something closer to home: the first ISF* competition of the new season, in Val-Thorens on December 16.
