Jenn Berg is sweet. Like, want-to-pinch-her-cheeks sweet. But her skiing is anything but. For example, she only rides men’s skis: the Volkl Kuro, taller than she is, at 185 cms long. And with appearances in multiple Warren Miller Entertainment films and a long career as a big mountain skier, Jenn Berg is one of the most recognizable names in the game. We rode a chairlift in Utah with her to talk about life, skiing, and indecision.
What does your season look like?
Backcountry snowboarding is another world. No fancy faux village, fireside warming, or ski-patrol hut. Rules and regulation are reliant on self, yet bound to the laws of nature. This realm is ripe, though, and the riding is limitless–”the best,” some acclaim. To endure and excel here, one will need these essential tools. Choose wisely and go wander.
