Forest’s fast track to success in Para-Alpine skiing was extraordinary. She completed only one year of competition on the Canadian and North American skiing circuit with Canada’s development team before she was invited to join the national squad in 2008. Forest then produced two excellent seasons in 2009 and 2010. On the 2009 IPC World Cup circuit, she won the season overall Crystal Globe with 20 World Cup podium finishes in the women’s visually impaired category.
