Do you know our Pros? Meet Katie Hitchcock – Shredder, Univ of Colorado Freestyle Team alum, and avid supporter of Billy Poole Ski with the Pros Weekend!
If you’re lucky enough to ride up the chairlift with Katie, she’ll probably feel like your best friend by the time you get off the lift. Katie is a from Steamboat, Colorado, but has relocated to the Salt Lake City area and is loving life at Alta & Snowbird. Katie has been a ski instructor at Alta Ski Area between freeride competitions. While at Univ of Colorado, Boulder, Katie was a member of their Free Style Ski Team. While earning points on the team, Katie also slayed her school work and graduated with a BA in Environmental Studies and a minor in both Italian and Business. Quite impressive!
“The Wasatch range is an incredibly special place to me now. Alta Ski Area has pretty much become my home even though I technically live down valley. It’s wonderful to be able ski up at Park City, Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons all within 30 minutes of where I live. The backcountry access is also outstanding and I deeply hope that land stays public!”
Katie may be one of the fastest skiers on the mountain, but she is also the type who won’t leave you in the dust. “The people who end up skiing the Wasatch mountains are some of the best I’ve come across and I’m so happy and grateful to be among them now!
Regardless of what niche of skiing/boarding, every person who is part of this community is so passionate and genuine. Of course being outside, staying active, and being able to travel is awesome as well but the people are what pull it all together regardless of what state or even country you’re in.
We are so excited to see Katie this weekend!
