MCKENNA PETERSON

I am lucky enough to have been born and raised in beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho. I grew up racing on the Sun Valley Ski Team, dedicating most of my time to skiing and other athletics. After high school I moved to Boulder, Co to attend CU. While at CU, I raced on the USCSA team for one year. This is where I was introduced to big mountain skiing and the Freeskiing World Tour. Goodbye ski racing. Five years ago, in search of more snow and bigger mountains I made the jump to the Wasatch.

Now, at 27 years old, I spend my winters constantly traveling and skiing as many days as possible. As an ex- Freesking World Tour competitor, I have learned to join my love for skiing big lines with my passion for adventure. My search for adventure and exploration has brought me across the world where I have climbed and skied in some crazy beautiful places. I spend my summers commercial fishing for salmon in Alaska in order to supplement my ski travels. Somewhere in this mix I have found the time to attend college and proudly hold a degree in Exercise Physiology.

My travels have provided me with a first hand look at the significant effect climate change is having on our planet as a whole. My passion and love for the environment continues to grow everyday. Lets take care of our Mother! I plan to continue my search for adrenaline and adventure in all aspects of life, especially in the big mountains where I feel most at home.
