Freeride

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.

Interview

1. Fixation Marker préférée
Kingpin 13
2. Pourquoi?
With other alping touring tech bindings, you sacrifice performance to lessen weight. Not with the Kingpin. It walks with ease, it skis like a normal alpine binding and, most importantly, I feel secure, especially with the hybrid construction of clicking into the heel.
3. Masques et casque Marker préférés
16:10+ Otis goggles and Ampire Helmet
4. Pourquoi?
The 16:10+ Otis has amazing comfort/cushion with the MAP layer which also seriously reduces forces when you face plant. I also love the frameless design and spherical, NMT-coated lens for maximum vision. The Ampire Helmet's hybrid construction not only makes it lighter and more comfortable, it also makes it safer. The RTS fit system allows for a snug, custom fit, and the vents and xdry linging make it cozy on cold days and pleasant on warm days.
5. Pourquoi aimes-tu faire partie du team Marker?
Visibility is the key element that allows me to charge down a mountain. Confidence that I am protected if things go awry is a close second. Marker products make sure that I have both of these items checked before I get radical.
