Dahria Beatty glides on a downhill in a cross country skiing race

Dahria Beatty


Dahria Beatty has been representing Canada internationally since 2009-10. That season she competed in the first of her three FIS World Junior Championships. In 2015 she debuted at the FIS World U23 Championships and returned two years later to post a 12th-place finish in the sprint and two other top-20 results.  It was also in 2017 that she competed at her first senior FIS 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 4x5km relay. That was Canada’s best result in the women’s relay since 2001.

Beatty made her Olympic debut at PyeongChang 2018 where she raced in five events. She joined with fellow Yukoner Emily Nishikawa to place 13th in the team sprint, a result also achieved in the women’s 4x5km relay. In her second appearance at the FIS World Championships in 2019, Beatty was the top Canadian in the women’s sprint. At the 2021 Worlds, she teamed with Browne, Laura Leclair and Katherine Stewart-Jones for a ninth-place finish in the 4x5km relay, a 20-year high for the Canadian women’s relay at the world championships.

In her second Olympic appearance at Beijing 2022, Beatty competed in all six women’s events, which included another ninth-place finish in the 4x5km relay.

Beatty made her World Cup debut on home snow in Canmore, Alberta in 2012 but began competing regularly on the circuit in 2016. She dealt with a lower back injury throughout the season that especially affected in her classic distance races, but she did post her career-best individual World Cup result when she finished 15th in the sprint in Canmore during the Ski Tour Canada which served as the World Cup Finals.

Beatty would not break into the top-20 in another individual World Cup event until a 16th-place finish in the sprint in Dresden in January 2019. In March 2021, she matched her career-best individual result with a 15th-place finish in the 30km pursuit in Engadin, Switzerland.

Beatty was the overall Nor-Am Cup champion in 2015-16 after finishing third overall in 2014-15. She finished second overall on the Nor-Am Cup in 2018-19.
