U.S. Mogul Champ Hannah Kearney: Let's Not Talk About Retirement

Hannah Kearney Talks Retirement
Is it surprising that the East produces so many great bump skiers? Not at all. Kearney looks forward to a new chapter, and offers a couple tips on how to rip in moguls.

Quaint, tiny Norwich, Vt., has put more than its share of athletes in the Olympics, but none more successful than Hannah Kearney. She won gold at the Vancouver Games, bronze at Sochi, and at times was unbeatable on the World Cup circuit. She won her first World Cup event in 2004 at the age of 17, then went on to collect eight World Cup season titles, including three overall freestyle globes. In 2011-12 she put together a record-setting streak of 16 straight wins.

“Do you speak English?”

It’s not every day you get asked such a question in your home country. This Forest Service ranger is clearly flummoxed by the camera-toting tourist shooting frozen roadside waterfalls: me.
