Kristen Ulmer is routinely called the best female big mountain skier of her time, maybe ever, and that annoys her, and she’ll let you know it. If you’ve seen Kristen ski, you know her gender doesn’t matter, she’s always been about sending it and most of the time it’s bigger than her male peers. Kristen is a living legend, a unique personality and in part one of the podcast, we talk about her not really falling in love with skiing until HS, being blind as a bat, extreme skiing, injuries, the US Ski Team, and more.
