Julia Murray is an Olympian, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Plant-Based Chef, and vegan lifestyle coach. She's a born and raised Whistler girl with a love for the mountains and all they have to offer. She grew up with either a bike or skis underneath her from a young age.
After going through the alpine skiing race program, she made the switch to the excited sport of Ski Cross. In 2007, the Canadian National Ski Cross team was developed and she was one of 4 girls named to the inaugural, soon to be majorly successful team.
Her achievements include:
-multiple World Cup podium finishes
-competing in her hometown 2010 Olympics (12th place), despite a badly blown knee.
-2011 World Champion Silver Medallist also on a serious knee injury (unknown at the time of the race).
With two major knee surgeries, and two major goals in life achieved, she retired from Ski Cross in 2012 to move on to the next life challenges and adventures.
So far the life adventures include:
-Starting the Ski With An Olympian Program with Whistler Blackcomb (Ski with her!)
