Osprey athlete Kim Havell, sent us the link to her latest Salomon Freeski video this morning. We love getting new stuff from Kim, because it gives us a little mental health break in the day watching her carve into big, beautiful powder and also, it makes us jealous — giving us a kick in the pants to get into the mountains even more than we already do. Thanks Kim!
Deep in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia Chris Rubens, Elyse Saugstad and Kim Havell put the new Salomon Guardian binding to the test. Beautiful conditions, deep powder and good folks to tour with… just another day at the “office”.
Based in Salt Lake City, Kim Havell began her career in the mountains as an alpine ski coach. From there she gradually made the transition to climbing and ski mountaineering. Kim has since been an instructor for the San Juan Outdoor School, CVA, and Babes in the Backcountry. She has also tail-guided for H2O Heli Guides, and been a twelve year member of the San Miguel County Search and Rescue Team, with medical and rescue certifications. Kim is the only woman (& one of less than 5 people) to ski the direct couloirs of the infamous Little Wasatch Ridge in Telluride, Colorado.
