Name a person who inspires you to be a better skier/rider? 
The US women’s mogul team (my teammates). They’re the best in the World and push and inspire me every day to be better.

In lieu of our 70th film, what’s your most memorable or favorite Warren Miller film or segment – past or present?
My mom was in an all-girls segment at Snowbird in Born To Ski. It’s a really Badass all-girls segment with one-legged skier Dianna Goldman.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I’d buy a house in every place I’d want a house and then get a jet so I could bring my family and friends whenever I wanted.

The best meal you can cook? 
I make some mean potatoes but I consider myself more of a dessert gal. My ginger snaps *muah

Favorite chairlift and why?
DC at Grand Targhee. My brother and I practically grew up on that lift...

The most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this year? (books, podcasts, TV shows)
Duals day at Deer Valley World Championships. Seriously exciting stuff, so if you missed it I’d highly recommend checking it out...

The fictitious character you most identify with from a book, movie, etc. and why?
Curious George pretty much sums me up. I consider myself pretty monkey-like and fairly curious...

Highlight memory from filming with WME for this year's film?
Heli-skiing for sure! I’d never been before and it was a wicked experience!

Gear you are loving right now, on or off the ski slopes, and why? 
"Spyder has this half puffy jacket that is amazing on and off the hill and I swear I’ve worn it every day since I’ve gotten it. 
Their gortex shell jacket that I wear in the film is also amazing. It’s so light and perfect all year around. "

Do you have any sponsors, if yes, who?
Oakley, Spyder, ID One USA
