I am a woman passionate about the mountains and snow, and I love sharing my passions and experiences through my company "Ruiz Ski Academy" and through "Eurosport" .

I feel happy seeing how people overcome and become excited, that's why I get closer to those who live life with passion.

I am proud to have made history by becoming the first and only Spaniard to have a victory in an alpine downhill skiing World Cup and it is also exciting to have created a national race for children called "Carolina Ruiz Challenge " and to be able to inspire future skiers through fun and educational activities.

I am passionate about being able to share everything I know with those who love this sport and doing it with my daughter is even more exciting. After many years dedicated to training, I am still as excited as the first day to be able to transmit my knowledge.

Seeing each skier achieve their goals and enjoy the snow confirms to me that I made the right decision at the time to live an extraordinary experience every day dedicating myself to the snow.
