Why I should be the new Lange Girl…

Why I should be the new Lange Girl…

For starters, I live and breathe winter. Skiing is my life, and I have decided to dedicate my life to it and follow the winter.

I learned to ski when I was eight years old in Taos, New Mexico. I had a rough start, but later learned to love the sport after moving to Bend, Oregon, home of Mt. Bachelor, and joining a high school race league. After a couple years of racing, and a bum knee, I called it quits, and decided to stick to free-skiing, what I truly enjoyed, and found myself on the mountain at least five days a week for the past few years skiing all kinds of terrain. From deep powder to washboard groomers, I’ll ski anywhere.

On the side, I am a professional whitewater kayaker, always up for an adventure as I travel the nation to find the next biggest wave, or the next highest waterfall. I have been paddling for 8 years, and am very involved in the sport, pushing my limits on a day to day basis.

Additionally, I am a student at the University of Oregon in Eugene Oregon, studying to become a Physical Therapist, with a side job as a heli-ski guide. Unfortunately, due to school, I have ended up away from the mountains for awhile, but I am back, ready to rip with my new pair of K2 Hellbents and Lange ski boots. (Did I mention they are badass-comfy, yet responsive boots?)

Currently, I am planning a three month trip to Chile this summer to hit up the big mountains and follow the winter. Who knows where I’ll be next…
