Katie grew up skiing in Michigan. Ever since the beginning, she's liked to straightline it. Even after a couple years of ski school during vacation, she still refused to turn, much to her mother's chagrin. Katie has since learned how to control her skiing and can make turns.
Along with skiing, Katie is the lone snowboarder at Powder7. She's a super fast, technically skilled, rider. She likes to do mad pow slashers and steep tree runs but also appreciates perfect groomers. She's ridden on slopes from Vermont to Michigan to Utah but spends most of her time riding Colorado. With her East Coast experience, she knows what ice is and believes she has never seen it in Colorado.
K2 continues to be one of the largest ski manufacturers out there. They make a ski for everyone to do everything. Take a look at the 2014-15 offerings. The All Mountain Resort skis are separate from the Precision Piste skis for the men and women (AMP and Potion Series). The Shreditors come in many more widths as do the Annex and women’s Remedy skis. The SuperModel series is now the Potion series but don’t worry, they are very similar- they now have ROX technology.
