Winter Vinecki was born on December 18, 1998 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but grew up in Gaylord, Michigan. When she was 9 years old her Dad passed away from an aggressive form of prostate cancer. Winter formed http://TeamWinter.org  a 501 (c) (3) non-profit to raise money for prostate cancer research & awareness. She has raised close to $500,000 toward that effort and counting.

Winter began racing triathlons at the age of 5 and completed her first Olympic triathlons at 9. She went on to become the Ironkids National Champion for 2010 & 2011 and spent three years as the official ambassador of the sport.

Winter was also the 2011 recipient of the Annika Inspiration Award. At age 12, Winter was invited to an aerial skiing camp by two-time Olympian, Emily Cook. After completing the week long camp, Winter moved to Park City, UT to train and compete for the next four years on the Fly Freestyle elite development team. During that time, she set a world record by becoming the youngest person to run a marathon on all seven continents, the youngest person to run 26.2 miles on Antarctica and the first mother/daughter duo to run a marathon on all seven continents.

Winter was officially named to the 2016-17 US Ski Team. She was supposed to compete at this year’s Olympics in South Korea but suffered an injury, and is currently recovering.
