Why should I be the NEXT LANGE GIRL…

January 5th, 2010 by

You know that feeling of skiing deep pow-pow and it billowing up in your face? When the sky is full of snow and the trees look like ghosts? That feeling of a perfect ski day… That is what I live for. My name is Alexandra, my friends call me Al (or Alex) and I was born and raised in Breckenridge, home of a winter wonderland second to none. With 8 months of winter, an awesome ski area right in my back yard and three more within 30 minutes how could I resist the temptation to ski with every chance I could get.My parents strapped skis on me the moment I could stand, and since then everything has just clicked.

I started skiing competitively with the Team Breckenridge ski team and I still am going strong. That’s where my passion for skiing comes in. I eat, sleep and breath snow! And nothing feels better than ripping the perfect run on a GS course or dropping a sick line in deep powder in the north bowls. Skiing is my life, my passion, my everything.

My parents had owned a ski shop in town for 21 years so I’m no stranger to the ski industry or the Lange Girl tradition. Seeing those posters throughout our shop and shops around the county. I always have dreamed of the opportunity to keep that Lange Girl tradition going. I believe a Lange girl needs to be the “girl next door” …sensitive, tough and sexy, which is exactly what I am. I’ve never done any thing like this before but one of my old age class coaches is a photographer so I though I’d give it a try; by no means am I a model, I’m just a Colorado girl who has a passion for snow and skiing that rules the slopes.

Growing up in Breckenridge I have had numerous opportunities to ski every day and I did with every chance I could get. Powder day? Yup! No School for me (I think I have a cough) skiing pow-pow was way more important. After high school, I knew I couldn’t be away from the mountains, or the snow so I journeyed up to Montana. Currently I attend Rocky Mountain College in Billings. I’m 3 yrs into an Aviation science degree to become a pilot. I would like to fly professionally so I can travel around the world and explore all the snowy regions I can find, year round. When I’m not flying I also race on the RMC ski team (just cant get it out of my blood) and chase gates at Red Lodge ski area, you just gotta love the northern Rocky Mtn. snow in Red Lodge it’s the best for ripping the mountain daily. I’ll do anything to go ski.

So why should you pick me? Let’s see… born and raised in Summit county Colorado 10,500 ft above sea level, that’s gotta count for something. Skiing before I could walk (I can prove it), and one of the sexiest girls who can rip around any mountain or GS course Period! Check it out; I would love the opportunity to be the next Lange Girl.

See you on the slopes, if you can keep up :)
