Dahria Beatty has been representing Canada internationally since 2009-10. That season she competed in the first of her three world junior championships. In 2015 she debuted at the U23 world championships and returned two years later to post a 12th place finish in the sprint. It was also in 2017 that she competed at her first world championships, teaming with Cendrine Browne for a 13th place finish in the team sprint and anchoring Canada to a 10th place finish in the 4 x 5km relay. That was Canada’s best result in the women’s relay since 2001.
Beatty made her World Cup debut on home snow in Canmore in December 2012 but began competing regularly on the circuit in January 2016. During the Ski Tour Canada, which served as the World Cup Finals in March 2016, she posted her career-best individual result with a 15th place finish in the sprint in Canmore. Beatty was the overall Nor-Am Cup champion in 2015-16 after finishing third overall in 2014-15.
