#59 The Art of Fear with Kristen Ulmer (Expert Extreme Skier - Author - Speaker)
EXPERT SESSION: Kristen is a thought leader, master facilitator and fear specialist who radically challenges existing norms around the subject of this deeply misunderstood emotion. Her education on this subject comes from practical, real- world experience, starting out with being a mogul specialist on the US Ski team. Kristen then became more notoriously recognized as being the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for big cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents, she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other danger sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking, and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most extreme “fearless” woman athlete in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.
