Kristin is a ski-mountaineer, runner, former elementary school teacher, and mother based in Aspen, Colorado. You can find her baking sweets in the kitchen or chasing her young girls around the Roaring Fork Valley on foot, bikes, and skis.
Kristin discovered skimo racing after spending many years on heavy touring gear in the Colorado backcountry. She loves the efficiency and details of the sport. Running and exploring the mountains in the spring, summer, and fall provides a good break from ski boots.
Kristin’s coaching philosophy is rooted in her experiences as a mid-pack racer and the leading, evidence based training approaches for athletes. She seeks to support athletes by giving them the structure, tools, community, and skills to be successful in a variety of races. She is very attentive to detail and understands the busy demands of work, family, and other commitments.
Her achievements include the 2022 National Champion in the Vertical for Ski Mountaineering and 3rd Place for the Individual. She also has had multiple podiums at the Power of Four Skimo races, 1st place Female Team at the Grand Traverse Ski, and Female Course Record for America’s Uphill on Skis. Kristin has also won the Power of Four 50k trail run and the Aspen Backcountry Marathon.
