About Ophelie

Ophelie is called "the greatest ladies' ski cross racer of all time" by FIS. The 39-year-old French uber-mom had a four-peat from X Games (2007-2010). In a dramatic passing of the torch, Ophelie and Kelsey Serwa battled ski-to-ski at the end of XG Aspen 2011, carrying so much speed they crashed on the final jump. Ophelie settled for silver. Returning in 2012 for redemption, she was the only woman to hit the final kicker during practice, but she fractured her fibula. Ophelie has competed in the Olympics for two countries and in two sports: 1994 slalom for Hungary (DNF) and ski cross for France (9th in 2010, 4th in 2014).
