ESPN recounts Kaya's recent achivements: "The most dominant female in ski slopestyle's young history, Kaya Turski successfully defended her 2011 golds at both Winter X 2012 and Winter X Tignes 2012, giving her three-peats in the two events. She also won both Dew Tour women's ski slopestyle competitions, claiming the overall Dew Tour slopestyle crown."
