Squaw Valley's Foreste Peterson was invited to train with the U.S. Development Team in Austria in 2010 and rallied that experience into a spot on the Team for the 2011 season. After a solid summer of training, she was ready to rock in 2011, but a fractured ankle sidelined her for the entire competitive season. Her return to racing did not disappoint, as Peterson finished top 25 in the NorAm overall, slalom, giant slalom and super G standings as well as scored a top-25 finish in slalom at the Junior World Championships in 2012.
She kept the upward trend rolling through the 2013 season, finishing top 15 in the NorAm overall, slalom, super G and super combined standings. In addition, she landed on the junior slalom podium with a third at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships held on her home mountain at Squaw Valley.
