Ellie began skiing as a toddler and won her first race at age 5. As a member of the Sharks Ski Club in Great Britain she raced slalom. The 2002 Olympics inspired Ellie, and she decided to focus on freestyle moguls with the hopes of becoming an Olympian. At age 15 she was Great Britain's mogul skiing champion. When she was chosen for the UK's Olympic team in 2010 at age 18, she became the youngest female ever to compete in an Olympic freestyle event. Ellie loves to travel to competitions but says she misses her younger sister and her dog. She was honored to carry the Olympic torch for the 2014 Olympics through Ashbourne, GB.
