Crested Butte's Ripping Female Freeride Blog


“Line of a Lifetime” or a “Lifetime of Lines?”

How do I pin just one line as my favorite? Six years ago my “line of a lifetime” would be so different than today. That is what I love about skiing, the progression of ever evolving possibilities! Looking back the most exhilarating line I have skied to date would definitely have been the “Big Hourglass” in the 2009 Subarau Extreme Skiing Competition at Crested Butte, CO. But, I would so much rather get to ski these lines with my friends and family. Then it would really be a line of a lifetime! Like the time that I went to Shasta Mountain in California and summited with my two close friends, Susan Mol and Jeff Troyer. Everyday that I get to be in the mountains and experience what those mountains have to offer, with the people I hold dear to me, is a great day. For example, when my sister comes out to visit and I get the opportunity to share what I love with someone I love, this is an awesome experience! This was how I was brought up skiing; skiing with my family.



Go Time!

CB ShredBetty is getting ready for an awesome season. The Freeskiing World Tour schedule is finally up and it kicks off in just a couple short months in Revelstoke. The Bettys are getting ready for skiing and also for some super-sweet blogging. Navigating the tech world is kind of like skiing dust-on-crust. Sometimes fun, but mostly not. We’ve got our own domain (woot!) and we’ll have the Facebook page up and running soon so you can follow all our (mis)adventures over the course of the fall and winter. Shreddin,’ sleddin,’ and bloggin,’ ’bout it…giddyup!
