Alpine skier Isabella Davis can go from zero to 100 kilometres per hour in a matter of seconds and being just 17-years-old, she's showing no signs of slowing down.
But with Year 12 exams to study for and strict isolation measures in place, the Youth Olympian finds herself taking a small step back and preparing for a snow season that may not eventuate.
Snow Australia has cancelled the NSW regional and Queensland interschool events, following the state governments' advice amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Southern NSW and ACT interschools competition is scheduled to be held at Perisher from July 19, but a decision is yet to be made.
Both Perisher and Thredbo are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 crisis and working towards a plan for the upcoming season.
MORE CANBERRA SPORT
It's left elite skiers like Davis, who trains at Thredbo Ski Racing Club, holding their breath on whether their three-month season will be cut short.
Davis, a Canberra Girls Grammar School student, is a three-time national interschools alpine champion and was selected for the Australian team at this year's Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne.
She competed in Super G, GS Alpine Combined and Slalom, finishing 48th in the former two events.
"The Youth Olympics was an amazing experience, it was surreal to represent my country and try as hard as I can," Davis said.
"I learned a lot from it, it'll help me in and out of skiing.
"My favourite event is the Giant Slalom. I really love the speed and agility you have to have for it, so it was a bummer that I didn't finish. It was a great experience."
Davis and her Youth Olympics teammates are still preparing for the Australian snow season given FIS-sanctioned events are scheduled take place later this year.
Her younger sister Jacqueline, the under-16s Australian giant slalom champion, hopes to compete in her first FIS event if the season goes ahead.
They compete in the same alpine disciplines but Davis concedes she won't be able to do as many events this year due to her Year 12 studies.
"I'm definitely going to take a small step back so I can get the best possible ATAR but I'm going to do the FIS races in term three because it's my sister's first time," Davis said.
"Hopefully I'll have some good results, finish school, then go to university and continue skiing.
"All the teachers have helped me with extra homework and whenever I need help or motivation as well.
"It's quite hard because with the ACT system you have to be at school at the same time. Thankfully at the Youth Olympics, my school put hold on my tests and assessments.
"They have really helped guide me with my studies so I could pursue my dream of going to the Youth Olympics."
The teenage Canberran has been skiing since she was two years old and aspires to become a Winter Olympian.
But for now, she's content on putting her schooling first so she can gain university entry to study physiotherapy.
"It's still quite connected to skiing," she grins.
"I would like to aspire to go to the Olympics but I think that would be quite hard as there are some amazing skiers out there who are older than me.
"I am going to continue to push as hard as I can because you never know what can happen. I would like to be a coach too."
