Seventeen-year-old Gabby Guarducci dropped into the sport of freeride skiing by chance. “My former coach put us into groups, and we didn’t know what they were.

We wrapped 281 empty boxes and cooked 549 kilograms of turkey. We decorated 38 trees with 2.27 kilometres – or 315 strings with 22,050 bulbs – of lights.
