The mountians are my happy place. Growing up in Minnesota I did not have access to mountains (my home ski area, Hyland Hills, is 175 ft/54m vertical). I remember our first family trip to Colorado and it was pure magic. That magic has never diminished for me. I started racing at age nine and made the US Ski Team at 15 years old. After ten years racing internationally and competing in the Torino and Vancouver Olympics, I retired from the World Cup in 2010. I wanted to explore the mountains without gates and courses dicating where and when I could turn. Post racing I fell even deeper in love with skiing when I discovered the beauty and adventure of the backcountry. As a reincarnated big-mountain skier, I get to travel to some of the most staggering corners of the world to do what I love and what makes it even better is that I get to share those experiences with others. I am one lucky girl.

Rider's Videos


1. Ski Volkl préféré
V-Werks Katana / RTM 84 UVO
2. Pourquoi utilises-tu ce ski?
Anything big mountain or a powder day / ripping around at the resort
3. Pourquoi aimes-tu ce ski?
The Katanas are a super light AND stable due to the makeup and rigidity of carbon. When I am touring, I'm not sacrificing performance for less weight, plus they turn with power and playfulness / the RTM 84s make carving so effortless and fun, when I tip them over I instantly feel the acceleration, plus they translate to off piste fun in crudier conditions and bumps well.
4. Pourquoi aimes-tu faire partie du team Völkl ?
The quality of the product is unmatched. I've raced in two Olympics on Volkl as well as skied first descents in gnarly untracked mountains and never has their been a moment when I didn't have complete confidence in my equipment.
5. Depuis quand rides-tu sur des Völkl
Altogether 10 years
