BIOGRAPHY
Sixteen-year-old Julia Krass is one of the few dominant fresh faces of freeskiing. Her first major result was a second in both halfpipe and slopestyle at The North Face Park and Pipe Open in Waterville Vally, N.H. in 2011. Since then she has reeled in a few Revolution Tour podiums as well as a fifth at 2013 FIS Junior World Ski Championships and a silver and bronze at the 2013 USSA Junior Nationals. More top five Rev. Tour results segued into her breakout in 2014, when she won the final U.S. Olympic qualifier for slopestyle skiing and earned a last-minute discretionary nomination to the first-ever U.S. Olympic team for slopestyle skiing.

FIRST TRACKS
Julia Krass's mother, Diana Krass, taught her how to ski at age two at Whaleback Mountain in New Hampshire. Competing with her older brother led to her skiing competitively at age eight. She ended up training with the Whaleback Core Team under Coach Evan Dybvig, a two-time Olympian. There she learned how to push her skiing to the next level. Krass currently skis with Team Axis in Park City, Utah.
