Laura's life really began at age 4 on the ski school rope tow at Whistler Mountain in 1984. By the end of that first day, she hated skiing with a passion and turned to soccer which she played until her second year at Colorado College. With the help of the guys at Igneous Skis in Jackson, WY, she entered her first contest at Snowbird in 2001 (in between semesters) on rental ski bindings. Although she crashed after qualifying, the seed was planted.
After trying Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and even Maui, Laura fell in love with Pemberton BC. She shreds Whistler/Blackcomb and loves to explore the wild terrain of the Coastal Range north of Pemberton with her blue Yamaha Mountain Max 700 snowmobile named Le Bleu. Laura climbed Mount Rainier and Mount Adams this spring, and will continue to find skiable volcanoes inthe world. In 2005 she won the North American Freeskiing Tour, and in 2006 she won the World Freeskiing Tour in a clean sweep.
You can see her in Team 13's film, Echo, and Two PLank Production's upcoming ski movie this year.She spends her summers painting houses and canvases, riding mountain bikes with fat tires, fishing and baking. She owes her charmed life to the mountains, and her parents, Pam and Bryan – both have opened her heart.
No worries, in every weather condition.
A bomber softshell, perfect for skiing the hill, but also withstands harsh weather in the backcountry.
Somehow, this jacket keeps me SUPER warm, and doesn't let me sweat at the same time. My most favorite piece of clothing...EVER.
My "doubles-as-a-dinner-jacket" favorite. Seems to work for hiking, biking, skiing, shopping...
Super light for being my security blanket out on the glaciers.
The stuff won't stink, and is very warm.
Super roomy, super waterproof: two must-haves for Whistler.
