My name is Kaitlyn Kendall Harsch (age 16) and I am an elite alpine ski racer from Eagle-Vail, CO. I have been ski racing for 11 years and my dream goal is to win an Olympic medal! I am currently ranked 2nd in the US in slalom for US athletes my age and this year will be my debut season on the NorAm race tour. Following in my Mom's footsteps as a former US Ski Team athlete and NCAA Champion, I started racing at the age of five with Team Summit and then moved to Vail from Summit County to train full time at the age of 8. At 14, I won the overall title in my age group at the U16 National Championships in all three disciplines (SL, GS and SG).
