Ingrid Backstrom hasn't been spending as much time at Squaw Valley the past few years as she finds herself in Whistler more frequently and is drawn back to her home, Washington.
When an opportunity arose to work in the freesking program as a coach at Crystal Mountain Washington, I'm sure it seemed like an opportunity to grow a bit more and feed her soul in a new way.
As someone who's had the pleasure of skiing with her at Squaw, I'll miss her, but I am stoked for this new adventure in her life.
SnowBrains has the story here.
