Gabby started ski jumping when she was ten years old soon after her family moved back to Lake Placid from California.
"I had been cross country skiing and figure skating since I could walk, and one of my Nordic coaches allowed me to go down the landing hill of the K18 at a ski event at the jumps."
The next day Gabby and her coach asked her parents if she could join the ski jumping team. Her mom said to ask her dad. Dad said yes, and one week later she flew 7m in her first ski jumping competition, and had been jumping ever since.
Fun Fact: She has been on two winning Ragnar relay teams (an approximately 200 mile overnight running relay race)
