Jessi Hackett

Jessi was born to a family of foresters on Colorado’s Western Slope and grew up skiing Telluride. After moving to the Front Range as a kid, she started calling Winter Park her home mountain and gave up rodeo for track and field and soccer. While at the University of Colorado, Jessi skied on the Freestyle Ski Team her freshman year and gave SkiMo racing a go for a few years after college, but will be the first to tell you she wasn’t very good at it.

These days, she enjoys backcountry skiing at a normal human pace, resort skiing, and casual Nordic touring. After over a decade in Boulder/Denver, she now calls Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley her home. Aside from skiing, she’s a recreational devotee of mountain biking, running, and hosting lively dinner parties. Jessi works full time at Aspen Snowmass where she is on the Creative Marketing team. She is also a freelance writer.
