He competed in the World Snowshoe Championship in Italy. CBS4 spoke with the 16 year old last November after he won the National Junio Snowshoe Championship in Vermont. There he ran a 5k in 18 inches of snow in 24 minutes.

“It’s fun, just athletic. I love running and skiing and all sorts of things. I began snowshoeing to help with my cross country, and now snow. They go to great together,” Vaille said.
