When I slide on my Volkl skis, I discover my inner peace, my "happy place'. I have found a deep passion for remote adventure skiing that requires heli's, skins or snowmobiles to access terrain. Primarily I am focused on the ski decent but I also enjoy the unique stories that develop and evolve from an epic ski day (dawn missions, etc.) Once the snow melts, I enjoy motoing, mountain biking, hanging with my husband, dog and family/friends in Cali. I spend a lot of time on the computer doing analytics for search engines (Google / Bing), as well as getting all artistic with photos and videos. Overall, I am a mellow girl who loves nature, good coffee and positive vibes.

Why do you like this ski?
The Shiro is a stand out ski because it excels in a variety of conditions, definitely not one dimensional. The versatility of the Shiro will deepen a skiers confidence level, as it has for me.


What conditions do you use this ski for?
Powder, crud, windbuff, carving groomers. This is the perfect all-mtn / backcountry / side-country ski as it is light weight yet stable.


What other skis in the 2011/2012 collection do you ride?
Katana & Kuro


Can you tell us a little about each pair of skis, and about what sort of conditions you use them for?
Kuro -> My BIG mountain ski! I use this ski whenever I heli-ski or on deep blower Wasatch powder days. Super fat, super rocker'd, super Good!
Katana -> I love my Katana's! This ski bombs through anything in its path. I love the shape, flex and sturdy weight of the Katana. This is my go-to ski for charging around Alta & Snowbird.


What bindings do you use and where do you mount them?
Marker Jester and Marker F12...I mount both bindings +1 of center


What DIN do you have your bindings on?
11 Din.


Favorite skier:
Shane McConkey


Ski hero growing up:
Tamara McKinney


Ideal day in the mountains:
Heli-Skiing, deep in the backcountry on a powder day with friends.


How would you describe your style?
My style is smooth, fluid, and relaxed. I excel at steep, technically demanding lines.


Your biggest breakthrough in your skiing career?
I think the 6 Warren Miller Films and multiple magazine Cover shots have been huge career breakthroughs for me.
Favorite place to ride:
The Wasatch backcountry
Best snow trip:
A couple years ago, I had 13 days of private heli-skiing in Alaska. We averaged 12 heli runs a day and the snow was consistently boot-top blower pow so we were able to get on some super steep slopes. It was truly amazing!


What age did you start to ski?
4 years old.


What can’t you live without?
Skiing


Favorite phone App?
PhotoShop (PS Express)


Goals and plans:
I plan on continuing to push my skills in the backcountry. The adventure of reaching a mountain peak, assessing snowpack conditions and routing the ski decent is where I plan on channeling energy this winter.
