Holly Jones

This is Holly’s first year with the XC Ottawa crew, and she’s stoked for the opportunity to train, race and hang out with the best of the best in Ottawa! Hailing from Huntsville, ON, Holly is in her third year of studies at Carleton University in pursuit of a B.PAPM (Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management) and hopes to contribute to environmental and Indigenous policy and development in Canada and beyond. She is also suiting up for her third year as a Raven for Carleton’s Varsity Nordic team.

The 2012-2013 season was her first time in the big leagues of the Senior Women category, and she had a blast competing at the 2013 Nationals in Whistler in her first ever 30km Skate race! Holly got her start in skiing early in life and spent lots of time shuffling around on the trails at Highlands in Duntroon as a youngin. She skied with the Huntsville High School Nordic Team and competed in 5 OFSAA championships (victory lap!). Despite being relatively new to high level racing, Holly has had a number of good results, including being ⅓ of the bronze medal team at the 2012 OUA Championships and placing top 20 at both distance races in her category during the 2012 Eastern Canadian Championships. She is aiming to improve her classic technique, sprinting abilities, and upper body strength this season (lots o’ pull-ups!). Outside of skiing, Holly loves running, hiking, Irish dancing, eavesdropping on Spanish conversations and cuddling with her family's cats.
