Minnesota Girl Gone Wild West
Hey guys! Iâ€™m Jenny and Iâ€™m a 21 year old born and raised ski bum from MinneSNOWta!
My first skiing experience was when I was 3 years old in Crested Butte. My parents put me in ski school, at the beginning of the day and by noon I was missing. Apparently, I got a little tired of the magic carpet and thought I was ready for the real deal so I escaped and when they found me I told them “the magic carpet is for babies!”
I guess I have always been a bit of a troublemaker! I love to have a good time and really have a hard time saying NO to just about anything!
I started racing at Highland Hills in Minnesota when I was 7 and continued through highschool. Notice how ski areas in Minnesota are â€œhillsâ€ â€“ skiing in Minnesota means 20 second runs … that takes serious love and dedication for the sport!
After highschool I packed up my jeep and headed west to the Rockies! Iâ€™m currently a senior at the University of Denver. I started out on the club ski team here for the first two years, but then realized that racing was wasting my time!
Why ski in the lines?
Since I have been in Colorado I have realized what skiing is all about:
face shots … of powder
shredding the gnar gnar
PBR tall boys
hiking even if Iâ€™m hungover
and pushing myself to the limit every time.
This winter Iâ€™m taking some time off of school and living in Aspen before I start my MBA classes. You can probably find me hanging out in Surefoot where I had my baby blue Langes custom foamed … AMAZING … or of course ripping down highlands bowl!
Basically my passion for skiing has shaped my life since I can remember. I have met the people I love most in life through skiing.
I would make a great Lange girl because I am outgoing, fun, and down for anything … I can shred and I look pretty good in what God gave me and my Lange Boots!
… sooo who wants to see it?!
