Squaw Valley Freestyle’s Ali Kariotis started dreaming of making the U.S. Ski Team at age ten. It only took her six years to get there thanks to a solid 2011 season on the NorAm tour (ranked fourth), including one victory and a fourth-place finish at the Junior World Championships in Finland.

Kariotis became a Junior World Champion in 2012 by winning the dual moguls in Valmalenco, Italy. That came after securing six NorAm podiums, including her second career victory. By the end of the season she had notched a career-high second-place finish in the NorAm standings and pulled in a top 20 finish in just her third World Cup competition.

The 2013 season added to Kariotis' strong resume. With five more top-five NorAm finishes, she headed to the FIS Junior World Championships with confidence and secured a sixth-place finish in both moguls and dual moguls.

FIRST TRACKS
Kariotis began skiing when she was eighteen months old at Squaw Valley, CA. She went through the Mighty Mite program at Squaw, which prepared her for the freestyle competitions she entered at age eight. “I had always loved skiing bumps, and when I began to compete, I knew it was the sport for me,” she says.

OFF THE SNOW
Kariotis enjoys being on the ocean when she’s not on snow. She spends her summers on Cape Cod, where she goes to the beach, plays golf, tennis, water skis and wakeboards.
