Kalen Thorien - Big Mountain Skier


Skier, adventurer, photographer, writer: it’s hard to pick one word to describe what Kalen does for a living.

It started with skiing, though. She moved to Alta, UT from her childhood home in Idaho in search of powder skiing. Once based in Utah, Kalen worked nights at the resort, which allowed her all day to hone her skills around the mountain. She spent summers as a wildland firefighter in order to take the winters off and focus on her skiing.

Since then, she’s become a multi faceted athlete here at SmartWool as she truly embodies the active mountain life, driving around the West in search of the next adventure.
