Alice Merryweather learned to ski at four years old on the wintery slopes of Attitash Mountain, chasing her brother down the hill. This was how she discovered her passion for speed. When she was eight, her parents signed both kids up for the Attitash Race Team, and she fell in love with the sport. When she reached high school, she realized Merryweather wanted to pursue her ski racing dreams and enrolled at Stratton Mountain School. At Stratton, she earned herself spots on the Junior World Championhsips in 2014 and 2015, as well as a spot on the D Team this season.
She deferred from Harvard University last spring to head to Park City to train for the summer. Her big goal last season was to qualify for the Junior World Championships in Sochi, Russia, which she did. Little did she know, she'd also make her World Cup debut in 2016, skiing the downhill at Altenmarkt, Austria.
