Athlete Feature of the Week: Samantha Boughner

The UBC Alpine Ski team is excited to announce that in our upcoming 2017-18 season roster, we have a great group of new recruits joining our lineup. One of these new recruits is Sam Boughner entering her first year at UBC after competing in FIS throughout her high school career.

Samantha Boughner is from Toronto, Ontario, and her home club is Osler bluff ski club which is located in Collingwood, Ontario. At UBC, she is enrolled  in the coordinated arts program – law and society in the faculty of arts. In FIS, Boughner skied first for the SOD team and then moved to the Ontario provincial Team. Her best results includes winning the CanAms GS in U16, coming Third in the Whistler Cup Super G and in FIS scoring in the low 70s. Boughner’s favourite disciplines consist of GS and Super G, and favourite place to ski is Whistler because of it’s breath taking views and amazing terrain. In the off season Boughner loves spending time outdoors, which includes her summer job of working at Camp Tanamakoon in Algonquin park. Boughner also enjoys participating in other sports such as field hockey.
