Peacham’s Avery Vilandrie is an All-American alpine skier.

The Brown University sophomore turned in a pair of strong performances at the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association National Championships at Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, N.Y., on March 10-12.

She earned USCSA All-American second-team honors in the slalom with a 10th-place finish, and with a 19th-place showing in the giant slalom, Vilandrie garnered All-American second-team status in combined scoring.

The Brown women took third place in slalom in the their first appearance at nationals since 2017.

It was a breakout season for Vilandrie, who attended high school at Green Mountain Valley School in Waitsfield. After competing in three regular-season races while taking sixth in slalom at the USCSA/ECSC Regionals as a freshman, she stepped it up this winter.

In addition to the All-American honors, she was named to the All-MacConnell Division Team, finishing 10th in total points in her conference.

Vilandrie is the daughter of Edward Vilandrie and Martha Cavanaugh. She plans to concentrate in Cognitive Neuroscience at Brown. Back in high school, the standout skier also helped lead the GMVS lacrosse team to the Vermont Division II title in 2017.
