Kalen is relatively new to the professional ski scene. 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. Kalen has worked her ass off to be where she is now. She spent the last two summers as a wildland firefighter in order to take the winters off and focus on her skiing. She has become a multi faceted athlete here at SmartWool as she truly embodies the active mountain life.
