The stunning Kristi was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania on February 10, 1981. Because her home was near the Seven Springs Mountain Resort (which has the highest elevation of any Ski resorts in Pennsylvania) it was easier for her to start training there. Later she move to Steamboat, Colorado. At the beginning she was uncertain about which path she would take either as a wakeboarder or freestyle skier, but you already know what she chose, and thanks to her decision, the womenâ€™s freeskier world is no longer overshadowed by the guys. Today she is one of the best freeskiers in the word, she is also considered the “pioneer” in putting the female freeskiing in the spotlight since before her nobody really took notice. Kristiâ€™s buzz recipe is to film skiing videos in several countries and that way reach a large and different kind of audience.
It was at the U.S Open when she was the only woman at the event, she was awarded with the Sports Awards for Female Skiers. In the Winter X Games IX in Aspen, Colorado she won the Bronze while her fellow freeskier and friend Sarah Burke (Canada) won the silver, Grethe Eliassen (from Norway) got away with the gold at the womanâ€™s Superpipe. That same year she won the silver at the FIS freestyle World Ski Championships at the Rukatunturi ski resort in Finland, her friend Sarah Burke won gold while they left Grethe Eliassen with the bronze this time. Kristi has also won at the US Freeskiing Opens, XGames, World Skiing invitational Nippon Open. Among her sponsors are Oakley, Monster Energy, Giro Helmets and Rossignol.
