Kristin Powers is yet another amazing woman of Stratton. She was only two years old when she put on her first pair of skis. “My grandparents bought a farm just outside of Killington in the 70′s, so ever since I was born, my family would drive up from New York just about every weekend,” shares Powers. As soon as she was old enough to stand, Powers’ grandparents strapped her into those little red plastic skis and brought her down small hills around the farm. It wasn’t until the age of three that Powers began to hit the real slopes. Her and her grandparents would go to Pico Mountain just about every weekend. “It was a chance to get away and do what we love together as a family,” said Powers.
As Powers grew older, she held onto those wonderful memories of the farm and goes back to meet up with her family as often as she can. Still on skis, Powers likes to explore the whole mountain. “I’d say I’m an all mountain rider. I absolutely love going out early and skiing on the freshly groomed trails,” remarked Powers. She enjoys throwing on her favorite music and cruising around on any trails she can find. Last season was Powers first full season skiing at Stratton and she fell in love with the mountain, the community and the people in it. She began as a Coordinator in Human Resources but after a summer of travel and working in Nantucket, Powers is back in a new position as a Training Specialist. Aside from personally interact with fellow employees, one of Powers favorite parts of the job is “having the opportunity to walk a few steps out of my office and be right at the base of the mountain.”
