Family Scandal

Julia grew up in a family of wealth in South Lake Tahoe. Her father Ciro was a wealthy real estate developer and Julia lived comfortably. All that changed when the Feds came busting down their door. It seems that a significant amount of Ciro’s wealth was obtained illegally as he headed up a major drug ring smuggling marijuana into the country. Ciro wound up being sentenced to nine years in prison but managed to get his time significantly reduced by turning Federal informant. Julia remained close to her father during the entire episode. Ciro now lives in Maui near a home Julia maintains there.

In the off season, Julia lives in Maui where her training involves lots of activity in the water

Athletic Career

Julia has long been one of America’s greatest women skiers. She’s been on four Olympic teams and has won four medals including gold in 2006 in the Giant Slalom. She competed in the Super-Combined today in Sochi, which will be broadcast on NBC in their coverage tonight. I won’t spoil the results by posting them here until the NBC coverage is over.
