Get to know Jenn Berg

I started skiing around the age of 4 yrs old, mostly on family vacations at the time.  Skiing became my love, but since I grew up in the Bay Area, I was left to daydream about playing in the snow and shredding around the mountains.  Throughout  Jr. High I ski raced on the Squaw Valley Race Team and moved to Tahoe right after high school. From there I started competing in Big Mountain competitions, taking 1st at the US National Freeskiing Championships at Snowbird and 3rd at the World Championships in Alaska.

These days, I no longer compete, but spend most of my time shooting with photographers and filming for my sponsors. Throughout my ski career, I have been fortunate enough to star in 6 Warren Miller Films and be published in all of the major ski magazines.

How were you introduced to your sport?
Family trips up to Tahoe introduced me to skiing. These special family adventures up to the Sierra Mountains are some of the best memories of my life.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by positive people that find simple pleasure and beauty in all that surround them. I also find inspiration from those who are able to push through life’s challenges with focus, passion and strength.

What advice would you give to newcomers to skiing today?
Never stop learning, remain humble, continue to evolve and progress… and most importantly, always have Fun!

How do you balance your training schedule with your “real” job?
Since “training” is more of a lifestyle and a way of life, it is important to find a “real” job that embodies a culture that aligns with my passions and offers flexibility. I do Search Engine Marketing which really only requires a computer and an internet connection, so it provides me the flexibility I need.

In 10 years I hope to be…
Healthy, Happy and continuing to share my stoke and love for Skiing with my family, friends and younger generations.
