Park City Transplant, Expert on Starting Later
Christine is a recovering lawyer and recreational skier living in Park City, Utah. After spending several years working as an attorney in New York City and Washington, D.C., she moved West in November 2019 with her husband and baby daughter, and hasn't looked back.
Christine grew up in Shelburne, Vermont and went to Dartmouth College, but as luck would have it, she didn't learn to ski until law school, when a friend took her to Jackson Hole. After that trip, Christine was hooked. She brings the perspective of a runner and new mom embracing skiing later in life and becoming a regular, despite learning as an adult.
She loves skiing at Stowe whenever she's back home in Vermont, and has had memorable ski trips to Squaw, St. Moritz, Zermatt and Jackson. Now that she's a Park City local, Christine can often be found at Alta and Deer Valley. Outside of ski season, Christine keeps active by marathon running, and is excited to get into Utah's trail running scene.
