Ski Noir 5280  Board Members



I’ve been skiing since I was 3 years old.  As president of Ski Noir, I’ll work to introduce more new skiers and snowboarders who look like me to the sport while connecting those who already have a love for the mountains. And as a person who enjoys a good ‘Turn Up’, I am no longer waiting for great events but rather cultivating mountain adventures for ALL.

My choice of ski fun is snowboarding. Although I’ve been boarding for some time, I’m not an expert but I keep it fun! My husband and I are Colorado natives and enjoy the outdoors. You can catch me on a snowboard, a motorcycle or a beach! If you see me out on the greens, just wave and I’ll catch you in the lodge for lunch! LOL! Hope to see you out on the slopes!

I moved to Colorado over 35 ago and my first year I on the ski slopes. I love skiing in powder, under blue skies and a few bumps.  My husband, three adult children and granddaughter are all skiers.
Using my previous ski club experience, my goal is to represent the club members while meeting the goals of Ski Noir.
On a personal note, I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, fishing, biking, and gardening.
