Kristi Leskinen is a freestyle skiing sensation. You can read a biography and see photos and a video of her below.
Kristi Leskinen is not your everyday snow bunny. Yeah, she’s gorgeous and hangs out on the slopes a lot, but she’s a lot more than a pretty face. She was the first woman to bust Rodeo 720 spins on the slopes (two rotations, head pointed to the earth). She has excelled at every sport she has participated in but freestyle skiing is her sport. She came in third at the World Championship X Games in 2005, second at Freestyle Skiing World Championships in 2005, second in the Halfpipe at the 2005 US Open, first place in the Halfpipe in the Gravity Games in 2005, fourth at X Games SuperPipe in 2006, second place in Slopestyle at the 2007 Japan Open and third place in the Slopestyle at the 2007 US Open. She is recognized as one of the world’s top ‘jibbers’ (that’s doing really dangerous stuff on skis).
Uniontown, Pennsylvania native, Kristi Leskinen, was born on February 10, 1981. She is 5′ 8″ and weights 130 pounds. She has been very athletic her entire life. She was virtually raised on the slopes of Pennsylvania. She has been featured as one of the sexiest women in sports in ESPN The Magazine and FHM.
In addition to freestyle skiing she skydives, bungee jumps, wakeboards, surfs and rides dirt bikes.
Kristi Leskinen uses video to reach a much larger audience than she would using only her competitions. She films all over the world pushing the limits to get better footage to lend exposure to the sport. Her videos are top selling ski videos.
