Meryl Davis Spends 28th Birthday Skiing in Lake Placid

Meryl Davis Spends 28th Birthday Skiing in Lake Placid

Meryl Davis bids Lake Placid goodbye in this cute selfie from Instagram, after celebrating her birthday and the new year there.

“A very special birthday on beautiful Whiteface Mountain! ????Thank you for all of the lovely birthday wishes and kind messages- they’re so appreciated! I’m a lucky girl ???? Hope everyone is having a great start to 2015!” the 28-year-old Olympian captioned with a cute video of her skiing on the mountain.

Just a few days before, Meryl reflected on how amazing her 2014 was: “2014…. Everything I could have hoped for. I will look back on this, a most memorable year, with gratitude, love, and a just a little bit more wisdom than before. This year I learned that life’s beauty is right there in front of us, ready to expand our lungs, fill our hearts, and hold our proverbial hands as we continue on our life’s journey. In victory or in defeat, in times of prosperity or of hardship, it’s the love we have for this chance to live, love and laugh that will fill the pages of our own stories. Wishing everyone a beautiful 2015.”

    She’s so cute. She was with her boyfriend and it wasn’t Maks. It was a little surprising to see her with someone different as I thought she was with Maks, but I guess not. Her BF was very sweet with her as she was learning to ski. He was on a snowboard and stayed with her the entire time. She did great.

    • Linda Andrews

      I am a big fan of hers and the guy used to be a skater for my country. I saw them at breakfast, but didn’t want to bother them since it was their own personal time.

    • Kayle

      Pretty sure that was her brother :)

  • Linda Andrews

    My husband and I came down from Kanata to watch Stars on Ice and spend a few days in Lake Placid. We go every year and we actually saw Meryl and her gentleman friend but didn’t want to bother her. They seemed to be having a great time and I’m sure she is enjoying the season off. Thank you for posting the story. – Linda

  • Dorie

    Everyone knows she is with Maks. I don’t know what Linda and Nicole are trying to say. What we have seen the last couple of weeks is real. I don’t care what Maks and Meryl deny, we know they are more than friends. Who cares if Peta was with Maks for the holidays. It was a family group celebration and so what if Meryl’s ex was in LP at the same time. He’s a skating coach. Also that Christmas picture was from last year. So anyone reading this, Maksyl on.

    • Pat

      Loon. These people make quiet observation and you post bull. Let that woman Meryl live.

      • Maksyl

        Those people are lying. They are just trolls from Tumblr. We get these kind all the time making up crap. Maks loves Meryl and his birthday post to her just is more proof. Meryl was in LP with her brother. Fedor is not in the picture any longer. So lay off.

        • Pat

          You people need help. The birthday post was a sweet sentiment to a lasting friendship. THAT’S IT. No need for the back and forth because I’m not arguing over it. This WOMAN is trying to live her life. Do the same.

          • Stacy

            I don’t think anyone knows who he is dating or if that IG post was only about a friendship or more unless you know them personally.

          • Pat

            Point is, you don’t know them. So most rational people think since they repeat over over and over again they are friends, believe what they say. So again rational people see a post and think oh that’s nice. Great friendship. Irrational people take innocent actions and twist them to make their own scenario work. They hold on to it because to they themselves do not want to believe they misread things. They themselves don’t want to appear foolish. They question they own ability to rationalize. Rip the bandaid off. Accept what they say. Most fans just enjoyed the entertainment they provide.

          • 3ebDCFC

            Could not agree more! Thank you for your sanity. These extreme shipper people are a few cards short of a full deck I’m aftaid. It’s sad they can’t move on. DWTS is a tv show and they are professional entertainers. It’s great they’re friends as well, but it is very, very clear that is as far as it goes. Let them live their private lives in peace.

        • 3ebDCFC

          You do not know them how can you possibly think you can speak for them or know any of these things you state as fact. Get a life.

    • 3ebDCFC

      You sound ridiculous.

  • Jordan

    Her on again, off again BF is Fedor Andreev. Apparently, Meryl and Fedor are on again. Google Fedor Andreev. He is a very good looking guy. While I loved to see Meryl and Maks dance, I never got a romantic vibe from either of them that they were more than just friends. Maks is in St. Maartin with Peta. Guess he wasn’t miserable enough the first time and is trying it again with her. Some people just like torture themselves, I guess. Anyhow that is the truth. Like it or not.

    • Stacy

      So you can tell what type of vibes are being given through the TV screen?

      • Riley

        No, you can tell there isn’t a romantic vibe because both has stated over and over that they are only friends. Maks has stated they aren’t dating and never will. Meryl has stated they aren’t dating and haven’t. What more can they say? They are close friends. Those aren’t very easy to come by these day.

  • Guest200

    I think Meryl could be everyone’s friend. I have seen her in interviews and she comes across as a very sweet and down to earth person and very approachable. Both her and Charlie have won lots of trophies besides the Olympic Gold Medal and you would think both of them would be really full of themselves, but they aren’t. They are good role models for the young people in the world today.

    • Kayle

      They are awesome role models! Love them

    • Carmela

      Meryl and Charlie are so talented! Hope they compete in 2018 Olympics!

  • Suse

    Happy Birthday Meryl! So glad you spend time with your family before going to Japan. You are such an inspiration, not only as an Olympian, but in how you give back so much to children. Can’t wait for Stars on Ice!

    • Kayle

      Happy Birthday Meryl!

    • Suse

      A belated Happy Birthday! Hope your day was awesome!

  • Brooklyn

    I met Meryl and Charlie at a meet and greet when they did Stars On Ice earlier this year. Both of them were so nice. I was real nervous because I am a big fan and Charlie was really funny and made me laugh which calmed my nerves. To me, they are the best skaters in the world and I can’t wait to see them again this year.

    • Kayle

      Love them, I hope they compete in the 2018 Olympics!

    • MCskatefan

      Totally agree. I met them at a Stars on Ice meet and greet and they are the nicest, most down to earth people. Such amazing talent :)

  • Kayle

    LOL Meryl’s video is so cute! Love the soundtrack! Happy Birthday :D

    • JeanieBeanz

      I know, right! Love the video =) Happy B-Day!

    • JK Dan

      Was that your first time skiing? You did really well :)

  • laffykathy

    You people know nothing!!! I know for a fact that Maksim and Meryl were secretly engaged over the Christmas holiday. The engagement plan had been in the works since summertime!! They were going to make a big public announcement, but in the end they said it was too complicated. Wait until DWTS new season, all will be revealed.

    • Riley

      Sure “LaffyKathy”. So if they are engaged, tell me why they spent their first holiday as a couple APART? He’s on a tropical island where Peta is and Meryl spent her holidays with her ex. What a great engaged couple they must be. Tell us a new one. You’re funny. Please don’t tell us to Maksyl on either.

      • laffykathy

        Maksyl On… NOW and FOREVER. They are engaged, this will come out when the new season of DWTS starts. The separate vacations are a deflection tactic. They are gearing for the media storm that will come when the engagement is announced. That is why they are spending private time away from one another. And don’t think Maksim didn’t hop a private Jet to Michigan and NY in the last few days for a few hours with his lady love…those little things are easy for him to do.

        • 3ebDCFC

          Laffy Wacky Kathy- Clearly you are joking. There is no way you actually believe what you type. You have to know you are living in a fantasy world if you remotely believe that. None of what you say makes any sense when you consider reality. Please tell me you understand that?

          • Stacy

            You have no clue who she is or what she knows to be true so I don’t know why you made this comment. She could be telling the truth you have no proof of it not being true.

          • 3ebDCFC

            You may want to think twice before defending laffykathy. Missing a few cards, that one. If proof is so important to you I am not sure why you would back up a person who is making some pretty big statements without it. Common sense and Meryl and Maks’ words are my proof. They have denied dating repeatedly.

          • laffykathy

            All truths will be revealed in time. Maksim and Meryl are very special people with a very special bond and they are going to make it last forever. Mark my words…. all will be revealed very soon.

    • 3ebDCFC

      So which tumblr maksyl blog are you? This seems like a narrative some of those obsessed shippers would support wholeheartedly and certainly no questions asked. Unfortunately for you and them this engagement story is bs. They are friends, they are not together romantically. Both have said this repeatedly. In the words of a recent classic, “Let it go. Let it goooo”

      • revanche

        laffykathy is a concentrated extract of all the Maksyl tumblr blogs and the idiots that go around posting on Meryl and Maks’ social media accounts. laffykathy just spelled out the Maksyl charter. They truly believe this is going to happen. Meryl and Maks keep feeding these nuts like they are feeding impoverished children from the developing world.

    I made the trip up to Lake Placid for NYE and was lucky enough to score tickets to SOI at the last minute thanks to a family friend. I used to be a huge skating fan, so I was very excited. I was lucky enough to meet some of the stars, and Meryl and Charlie were amazing. So sweet and welcoming. Meryl is a tiny thing and Charlie is so caring. I also got to meet some of my other fav skaters, but none of them compared to the magnificence of M&C. Evan Lysacek was such a sweetie, Joannie Rochette is a friend of the family I was with and was also great, and Fedor Andreev is a long time fav of my mom’s and he was great as well. Overall it was such a wonderful experience and I’m so happy to hear Meryl enjoyed her birthday, she certainly deserves nothing less and seeing all the other stars interact with her just showed how much love and respect they have for her.

    • Kayle

      Fedor Andreev was not in the show and is not affiliated with SOI.

      • Lily

        You’re right, he didn’t perform. But he was around the Olympic center and my mom and grandma are both huge fans (my grandma is from Russia) so they were able to meet him! Very nice.

        • Dorie

          Any pics to prove it?

          • Lily

            Prove that I was there? Why? Of course we have pictures. We took pictures with everyone we met. But I am confused why you would ask me to prove it?

          • Maksyl

            I think she’s asking for you to prove Fedor was there. Do you have pic of him?

          • Lily

            I have pictures of my family members with him but I don’t understand why that would be of any interest. I will also not share my personal pictures with strangers on the internet.

          • Dorie

            Because people don’t believe he was there because there aren’t any pics. People know that Meryl and Maks are a thing and there are people that area saying he was there in order to prove Meryl isn’t with Maks, so that is why I was asking if you had pics that would actually prove he was there.

          • Lily

            Did Meryl and Fedor Andreev date? Interesting. I don’t know (nor care) who Meryl is dating but Fedor was definitely in Lake Placid. Nice guy.

  • el7jake

    Wow! I see there’s still plenty of speculation regarding M&M. Looks like the only thing that can be said with certainty about the two of them recently is that she participated in Max’s show SWAY and asked him when he was going to ask her to participate in the next show (both of these on YouTube videos). It should also be obvious tthat Meryl Davis is a stunning young woman with a world of possibilities from which to chose. Since she appears to have a good head on her shoulders, I think she is in for an exciting, fulflling life, no matter who she is with.

    • Kendal24

      I hope they take SWAY on tour and come to the midwest, not just the east and west coasts :)

      • Suse

        Supposedly there will be a SWAY tour, but nothing has been officially announced.

  • minerva

    nobody takes her seriously since her nudes were leaked on zwee.tk lol..

    • beyondering

      who would want to see her nude? that must be by unpopular demand.

      • Guest

        She is not the kind of person to have nudes online so that is total bull and you need to stop hating so hard she is amazing and you are nobody to her.

    • Stacy

      That is bull and you know it.

    • Lisa

      The above website is Malware.

    • Carmela

      Bad site here. Virus and Malware. Minerva needs to be blocked.

    • Annie_Skate

      @Just Jared Jr: you need to take down the comment with the bad linK from Minerva. I’m sure it’s been flagged.

  • laffykathy

    Why do you think Meryl had that map of Italy on her wall, which she proudly displayed on instagram? It meant so much more than you think. Cantamessa was commissioned for a very special custom ring made in Italy for a very special event involving a very special woman, all will be revealed in time. Everything else is a diversion.

    • 3ebDCFC

      Fantasy. Land. Population: Laffy and obsessed tumblr Maksyl shippers. I guarantee that is not true.

  • Sylvia

    I like Meryl, but looking at some pics of her, I find it hard to believe that she is an Olympic Gold Medalist. She looks frail or puny at times, and given a brisk wind, it would completely knock her over.
