Kaitlyn is a huge believer in doing what's best for you—an attitude that has brought her to winning a Gold medal in the 2014 Olympics for halfpipe. Shortly after, however, she had to retire due to being diagnosed with Congenital Cervical Stenosis. On December 17, 2015, she received a final call from her doctor and decided to become an adventure boarder. Seeking soul rides and bottomless powder, she started hiking peaks to find solace & beauty in the mountains. These days, you can find her farming for good snow in the backcountry mountains of her home in Whitefish, Montana!
"People say you are what you eat, but I believe you also 'are what you wear.' Living sustainably isn't just about what you do, but also about what you put on your body. Wearing eco eye protection is #1 RAD, #2 benefits the planet, and #3 helps you see the world through eco lenses. Thanks ZEAL for making that possible!"
