Born and raised in Park City, Utah, Rosie is a four-time U.S. champion, 2018 and 2022 Olympian, and ranked in the top-10 in the world for cross country skiing.
Rosie is one of the strongest and most dominant athletes on the World Cup circuit. As she enters her 10th year on the national team, she has over 200 World Cup starts, ten podiums and two victories - she just landed on the podium TWICE in one-weekend and the 2023-24 FIS World Cup season-opener in Ruka, FIN. Even though she only started skiing when she was 14, her later-than-typical start never hindered her from finding success on the world stage.
Rosie has represented the USA at two Olympic games, starting in seven races, with her best result landing her fourth in the sprint. She was the first American to hold the overall World Cup leader's bib, World Cup sprint leader's bib and the World Cup distance leader's bib all at the same time - showing her versatility in distances and techniques.
Outside of racing, Rosie is very involved behind-the-scenes. When she's not racing and training, she volunteers with Fast and Female—a program dedicated to empowering young women through sport—and Skiku, which provides nordic ski instruction to children and communities all around Alaska.
"I value showing up and being there for yourself and your team, being gritty, and making the best of what you have on any given day. "
