Olympic skier Janina Kuzma shares her process in short film by The North Face
The North Face, the world’s premier supplier of authentic, technically innovative outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear today releases Janina Kuzma: The Process, a short film clip giving insight into the year-round training program for this competitive skier.
Kuzma has been lauded for her ability to compete at an elite level in both halfpipe and big mountain skiing. She maintains focus and training to compete professionally in the halfpipe, and also balances working on big mountain film projects in seriously demanding terrain.
Focusing on qualifying for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Janina has spent the northern hemisphere winter season competing in North America, Europe and Korea and has successfully collected her qualifying points that will see her to Pyeongchang next year.
“The road leading to PyeongChang is super busy, with less than a year until the games. This New Zealand winter will be busy with our Olympic media campaigns, New Zealand Winter Games and training until the northern hemisphere winter.”
Aside from competing, Janina keeps her schedule full with training, freeriding and filming. Most recently she has been part of the Shades of Winter dynasty, a collection of three ski films featuring elite female free skiers from around the world.
Kuzma has featured in all three films, and initiated segments filmed in New Zealand. Kuzma also hosted a Shades of Winter training camp at Cardona last season, a women’s-specific freeride progression camp.
Kuzma has been filming for the fourth Shades of Winter film.
“Freeriding outside of competition keeps everything in balance for me. It is liberating for me and even if I'm filming or taking photos, it still feels like downtime,” says Janina Kuzma.
Kuzma will be competing next at Winter Games in New Zealand, and will continue working through film projects, while training towards the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

The last few days have been a tough with a capital “T”. I’ve been unmotivated, unenthusiastic about most things that would have been biting at the bit, and lethargic. o instead of feeling bad that I don’t have enough internet to download re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy onto my laptop, I have created a list. It started as just listed reasons as to why I should love my body, but I soon realised that this is applicable to any person, of any gender, of any age.
