Katy, 39, is the only Snowplanner in the USA, based in Aspen Colorado. She started snowboarding in 1991 on the mountains of Bachelor, Willamette Pass and Hoodoo. It soon became her greatest passion! In 1998, Katy became a professional Snowboarder and moved to Tahoe in 1999. From 2000 to 2004 she spent her winters in Mammoth, brought her snowboarding to a higher level and became agile in the parks. Both boardercross and halfpipe suited her best. She had several sponsors and was at the Transworld. She eventually moved to Oregon to help Betty Rides. She was a member of the ladies freeride team for Mr Hood Meadows to help with the High Cascade Snowboard camp.
At the age of 26 she broke her ankle and Katy understood that she had to take a job alongside her professional career. She started as a broadcast crew for the X Games, Burton US Open and Burton Canadian Open. She then moved to Jackson Hole where she worked on Brainfarm and Teton Gravity Research. She later heard of a great job as a department coordinator at Adidas Action Sports, where she later supported the Vice President for 4 years.
She was so disappointed by working in an office, she missed the mountains too much and moved to Aspen to work as a snowboard instructor again. Katy still lives and works there and is on the mountain for at least 80 days a year. There is no better therapy than being on the mountain
