Hello, I'm Kaitlin Elliott, aka Boot. Born 1986 in wintery Salt Lake City, snow has always been the backdrop of my life. After graduating from High School, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life: work at a Ski Resort and "Live The Dream!" After four years of various positions inside and outside the Resort industry, I returned to school to get my degree in Massage Therapy. I'm proud of my work, and thankful for the opportunities it has given me. Helping others keeps me grounded, focused and passionate. Whether snowboarding, mountain biking, or day to day life, I'm prepared for whatever comes my way with confidence, style and grace.
My goals for the 2014 season are to promote my sponsors more publicly and effectively. I intend to be an awesome ambassador for my sponsors throughout the season, both on and off the snow. I recognize the importance of exposure, and am actively planning to appear in more photos/videos to promote myself and my sponsors. Competitively, my season goal is to be a fierce contender in my first year on the Swatch Freeride World Tour, taking a podium at every event I enter. I believe you deserve what you earn, so I'm working harder then ever in preseason training to ultimately deserve a win. My noncompetitive goals are to attend Tailgate Alaska 2014 in order to push my comfort boundaries in the grandeur of the Alaskan mountains and sticking backflips.
Passion, determination and positivity; that's how I live my life and ride my snowboard. Since linking my first turns fifteen years ago, I've been hooked! After years in competitive sports, my mental game is sharp. I know that hard work, determination, and a strong, positive mindset are the keys to succeed. I’m very proud of how far I’ve come in snowboarding, and am stoked to experience what's next!
