What is your favourite place to ski and why?
Breckenridge. It is always on point, fun rails and perfect jumps.
What kind of skier are you?
I would consider myself more of a rail skier. I have been hitting lots of urban this year and competing in rail jams.
What has been your greatest accomplishment as a skier?
Getting 2nd place at rails 2 riches last december. I got a last minute "lottery spot" two days before the contest. I got in my car that night and drove 34 hours by myself from colorado to vermont. To stand on the podium and win 2nd place was the highlight of my season so far.
How do you stay busy during summer?
I work at Woodward at Copper which means access to skiing all summer. It is a rad environment to work at, and can't complain about skiing all year.
When are you most satisfied when skiing?
I am most satisfied when I stack a street shot. There is nothing better than spending time setting up a feature, taking some nasty falls, then walking away with a shot.
Is there a rule that you live by?
I recently was told that when the whole ski industry has tunnel vision it only takes one person to see things differently. That has become my motto. I am trying something new, something that has not been done many times before. It is definitely a motto worth living by.
What do you see in Orage that reflects who you are as a person?
The diversity of the team! I think it is so rad how Orage is so supportive of what I am trying to accomplish. There are only a handful of girls trying to hit the streets and to have a company back it up 100% is too rad.
What is your favourite piece of Orage gear?
My favorite piece of Orage gear would be the Deal jacket. It is the perfect jacket for cold Colorado days.
What are you up to this season?
I went to Vermont in december for R2R, then an urban trip to Park City in January. I just got back from a two week trip in Spain to compete in the World University Games. I am also hoping to make a trip to Montreal to stack some last minute street shots.
