Kristin Waddle

U16 Coach

I grew up on the coast of Maine and every weekend would drive to Sugarloaf to ski with the family! Once my parents realized I had an extreme love of the sport they sent me to Carrabassett Valley Academy for high school! Where I raced FIS level ski races along with playing soccer and golf! After graduating from CVA I decided to keep pursuing my love for the sport and race Division 1 at Bates College. Soon after I hung up my race boots I moved to Jackson to get a feel of some west coast skiing and quickly fell in love! I was planning on staying for only one winter but 6 years later here I am!
