Hall of Famer Jennifer Heil


Jennifer Heil began skiing at the tender age of two and by the time she was 19 she was already standing on top of a World Cup podium.  A three-time Olympian (2002, 2006, 2010), she was introduced to the world stage as the youngest Canadian skier at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games, where she placed 4th.

Heil dominated the field at the 1999 Canada Winter Games for Team Alberta, taking home the Gold in the Moguls event in Freestyle Skiing. Jennifer is the Gold medallist from the 2006 Turin Winter Olympic Games, earned a Silver medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, a four time World Cup Overall Women’s Mogul titleholder (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007), two-time FIS World Champion in dual moguls, and holds eight Canadian national titles. Jennifer was the first Canadian woman to ever win a World Cup Overall Mogul Title.

Jennifer is passionate about the growth in her sport and is a tireless ambassador for creating equal opportunity for women in sport. She has run female-only mogul ski camps and co-founded B2ten that assists Canadian athletes to reach their full potential. Jennifer speaks to youth across Canada promoting her “Dare to Dream” theme that emphasizes the importance of dreaming big and never giving in to obstacles or perceived limitations.
