Kaitlyn Harsch

My parents put me on skis when I was 2 years old and got me into racing at 5, and I’ve been chasing snow ever since. I moved from Summit County, CO to Vail about 10 years ago to pursue ski racing more seriously. I graduated a year early from high school and went straight to college. I am now a sophomore at CU and love every second of it! In my free time I like to hang out with my friends, play guitar, and paint.
