Roni Remme won a silver medal in the slalom at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck. She went on to compete at the world junior championships in 2014 and 2015, finishing 10th in the slalom at the latter. But Remme was struggling to advance from Alpine Canada’s development team so she decided to give NCAA competition a try and enrolled at the University of Utah. In 2017, she finished third in the giant slalom at the NCAA Championships as the Utes won the national team title. She was also an All-American in the giant slalom and slalom.
Choosing to take a break from school in 2017-18, Remme made her World Cup debut in the Lake Louise downhill in December 2017. A month later, she finished an impressive 11th in the slalom in Zagreb, Croatia. Remme also competed in Nor-Am Cup events during the 2017-18 season. From December 5 to 14, she recorded an incredible six first-place finishes in downhill, super-G, slalom and combined races in Lake Louise and Panorama. Heading into the season, she only had four Nor-Am Cup podiums in her career.
