Reuben MEDNICK

DIV: U10

Discipline: Slalom Trick

Reuben learned to ski 4 years ago at his family cottage with the help of his mom and dad. He loves water skiing because it’s fun, and he loves the rush of the fresh air on his face. In the summer of 2017 he went to McClintock’s Ski School for a water ski camp and water skiing quickly turned into a competitive passion for him. He was thrilled in 2018 to win first place at the Ontario Championships in the Boys U10 division. When Reuben isn’t skiing you can find him competing in downhill racing on the slopes, or enjoying many creative hobbies like piano, voice and musical theatre.
