Jasmin Taylor

Jasmin Taylor is the first Briton to win a World Championship medal in telemark skiing. She has achieved 4 World Cup victories, across all 3 disciplines and has 22 World Cup podiums to her name. Jaz is a 5 time British Champion and 2013 French Cup Champion. She finished 2nd in the Parallel Sprint and 3rd in the Classic overall World Cup 2017/18 standings.

Jaz joined the British Ski Academy as an athlete aged 12, competing as an alpine skier. After becoming the youngest British Ski Cross Champion ever, aged just 15, she made the England Freestyle Ski Team in 2009. It was during this time Jaz started telemark skiing, a discipline for which she showed potential on a far larger scale, competing in 2011 at her first World Junior Championship.

Jaz was invited to the World Junior Championships after the British Telemark Ski Team spotted her results in the French Cup series following her frequent podium appearances. Jaz has been on the team ever since.

During winter, she bases herself in Chamonix, France, and is currently training for the World Cup season and the 2019 World Championships. Persistent and hard-working, Jaz’s exceptional talent for telemarking is matched only by her fierce determination and ambition to one day be World Champion.
