Kit DesLauriersKit DesLauriers has been living and skiing in the Tetons and at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for the past 7 years. Kit is a year round resident of Teton Village, WY, which borders Grand Teton National Park, a favorite destination of hers.
Kit Deslauriers's first international climbing expedition was to Peak Siniolchu (6,887 m) in Sikkim, India during April/May of 1998. It was during this trip, as she moved through the majestic Himalaya, that Kit DesLauriers realized how much she wished she had her skis with her. A turning point in her approach to mountaineering, Kit decided that her focus would be on ski mountaineering and refining the skills she needed to ski anywhere. This focus has seen her through to ski descents in the mountains of Antarctica, Russia, Alaska, the European Alps, New Zealand and South America.
Women’s Ski CampsKit DesLauriers enjoys coaching other women in skiing and started her successful all women's weekends called "Turn it Up Women's Ski Camps". Kit continues to further her niche in the ski world as a woman who is pushing the envelope of steep skiing and ski mountaineering.
