Kayla embodies everything that it means to be a mountain kid. She's tough, she's friendly, and she loves everything about the outdoors.
Kayla had a stellar season in this abbreviated competition year and led the charge of our awesome female crew. But you can't get by in life off of just skiing, so she backs it all up with leadership and comradery. Kayla is a great skier and an even better person!
