Elena Pressprich | SKI
What got you started skiing: My Parents! They started my sister and I young since they loved skiing, it's now too, a love of mine.
Who were your favorite riders growing up: Sarah Burke was my biggest inspiration while growing up and still is to this day. She paved the way for so many women in the sport and changed the game.
Pre Ski Rituals: Wake -> Coffee -> Go
Hobbies outside of Skiing: Photography and exploring on foot and bike
Music while you ride? Occasionally! I would say most of the time I'm chattin it up with friends though.
Guilty pleasures: Nailing a selfie... After 173 tries. Also crushing an entire box of trader joes dark chocolate peanut butter cups with a bottle of wine.
Why do you ride for BlackStrap: BlackStrap makes top of the line products that protect my face, keep it warm but also totally breathable, they have so many great style and color options, they're local, and the crew there is made of awesome folks!
Facemask of choice: The Danna and The Tube are my go to pieces! The Tube is very versatile as well which makes it a favorite!
Support: BlackStrap, Surface Skis, Orage, Osprey, GoPro, Crowsfeet Commons
