      Kjersti "KJ" Gedde (USA)

       

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      Currently based in Carbondale, CO but grew up in Washington State, where it’s steep, deep, and sometimes quite wet. Though I think the high moisture content helps to build strong quads. Haha.

      Favorite mountains?

      Mt. Baker, WA. The in-bounds terrain, access to incredible backcountry, and the great community… but the North Cascades, in general, are something to inspire lore. Currently based out of Carbondale, CO I’m getting pretty excited about the local range, the easy access to a zone that reminds me a lot of the PNW, and the proximity to the San Juans.

      Your home ski area?

      Highlands, Aspen, CO will be my local hill this winter. Excited for the new terrain, great views of the Elks, and uphill access.

      What was your first experience with skis?

      I switched from skiing to snowboarding in college. I was working for an adaptive ski organization helping folks with disabilities get out on the snow. I took a few clinics from some coworkers and figured I was ready for the steeps, went over to the steepest pitch at the local hill, Alpental, and just kind of decided to send it. It was pretty moguled out but it was spring so they were big and a bit forgiving… Fortunately, I only tomahawked less than I can count on two hands, kept both of my knees fully intact, and haven’t touched a snowboard since.

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      Skiing, mountain biking, climbing, and writing music.

      Why Majesty?

      A few years ago, I fell hard for the Majesty Vixens… they were my do-everything skis. Light and nimble for the uphill but could still stomp in a competition, and I haven’t looked back since - they keep getting better and better! I can’t wait to try out my new quiver in the CO Rockies and touring PNW volcanoes in the spring.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      Nearly 5 years. :)

      What are your achievements with Majesty so far?

      Teaching some women’s-specific ski clinics, some fun lines in the Cascades, successful freeride competitions, and connecting with some incredible folks across the ski-world.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      Go on long walks through some big beautiful terrain that I haven’t yet explored, check some inspiring lines of the tick-list, and continue to help build and empower communities around women and skiing.

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I grew up in Scotland and I live in Granby, Colorado.

      Your favorite mountains?

      I have a few! My favorite resort in Colorado is Telluride and now I have a soft spot for Granby Ranch as I live here. Internationally, I love traveling to Japan for the quality and abundance of the snow, Gulmarg in Kashmir for the amazing lift-accessible terrain, Georgia is amazing and I love going to my favorite resort in Chile in the summertime because it's great to beat the heat and the skiing and food are amazing.

      Your home ski area?

      Granby Ranch CO where I worked as the Ski School Training Supervisor.

      What was your first experience with skis?

      My very first time was when I was 8 or 9 on a plastic dry slope at the Loch Rannoch holiday resort in the Scottish Highlands. I loved it so much that we started skiing on snow the next year and we would go every winter to Aviemore and the Cairngorm mountains and sometimes the Lecht and Aonoch Mor ski areas.

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      I love to mountain bike, fly fish (Japanese Tenkara-style), hike, cross-country ski, snowshoe.

      Why Majesty?

      I've been an ambassador for many brands over the 20 years I've been involved with the industry. I was attracted to Majesty because they had a reputation for making high-quality freeride skis. Their designs are driven by rider input and are performance orientated. I was excited to ski for a brand that is new to the U.S. market so I could have more impact in helping market the brand.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      Since 2019

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      Most of my exposure of the brand is to my clients for The Adventure Project during our trips and at the resort I am working for.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      I'd like help grow the brand here in the U.S. I am planning to re-start my business now that covid restrictions are easing and I want to start to run our trips around the world again as soon as possible...

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I live in Vercorin, Switzerland. I come from Łódź, Poland.

      Your favorite mountains?

      The Swiss Alps.

      Your home ski area?

      As I'm from a big city in a totally flat part of Poland, it is hard to say :) I always had to drive many hours to the nearest mountains. My second home for 5 years now is Switzerland so the little swiss village where I live I can call my home spot, it's called Vercorin in the canton of Valais in French-speaking part of Switzerland

      What was your first experience with skis?

      When I was three years old, my five-year-old brother went skiing on a "big" mountain with our parents for the first time. My parents decided that I was still too small. I was so outraged and sad that after my strong protest, my parents were forced to take me too ;)

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      Downhill biking and electric bikes, which allow me to explore and discover completely wild and inaccessible corners of the Alps. I also like learning foreign languages :)

      Why Majesty?

      Because I'm a big fan of it's quality and design, I can fully trust them when I'm skiing, even in the sketchiest terrain. I love the philosophy of the brand and the fact that it's Polish.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      Proudly since 2017

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      Multiple Polish Championship titles in slopestyle. Winning the Freeride World Qualifier ranking in Europe and Oceania region in 2020. Scoring 3rd place at the Freeride World Tour 2021.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      Do my best during the Freeride World Tour competitions. My greatest dream is to win the FWT title :)

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I live in Seattle WA but I grew up near Raleigh, NC.

      Your favorite mountains?

      Japan and Switzerland are incredible but there's nothing like skiing down the side of a giant volcano here in Washington.

      Your home ski area?

      Crystal Mountain

      What was your first experience with skis?

      Growing up in the southern U.S., I didn't really get to ski until I moved to Vermont after college. I taught myself on those icy slopes but really fell in love once I started taking ski trips out west with friends.

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      I enjoy skiing in resorts but my real love lives in the backcountry. In the summer I enjoy mountaineering and backpacking in the Cascades but I'm also fortunate that the ski season never stops here in the Pacific Northwest and I have skied every month for more than seven years.

      Why Majesty?

      I love Majesty because freeriding is in their DNA. They're designed by people who love doing the same type of skiing I do and strike the perfect balance between weight and power for what I need.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      I've been skiing Majesty skis for four seasons now.

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      Many great days in the mountains! I've used them to ski off the summits of four of the five volcanoes in Washington.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      More great ski seasons and plan to get Mt. Rainier in the spring.

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I live in Trondheim, Norway. I come from Rælingen, Norway.

      Your favorite mountains?

      My favorites are the Romsdalen and Sunndalen mountains, and also the Jotunheimen National Park.

      Your home ski area?

      My home spot is Vassfjellet, Trondheim, and Marikollen, Rælingen.

      What was your first experience with skis?

      I had skis on my feet from the time I learned how to walk. So my first experience was skiing around in my backyard. Otherwise, I started rando skiing nine years ago in the mountains surrounding my cabin, and then had a winter in Chamonix where I learned a lot.

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      My favorite sports are alpine skiing, cross country skiing and running.

      Why Majesty?

      My good friend from Rælingen, Espen Helgesen, put me in contact with Svein-Erik and Majesty Norway. I really like the quality of Majesty Skis and how the brand designs and develops their skis. Majesty Norway is such a great family as well, with lots of inspiring and dedicated people. Moreover, it's really cool to join the development of the brand here in Norway.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      Since 2019

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      I've had many cool days and longer trips in the mountains of Romsdal, Sunndal and Jotunheimen. I'm currently skiing the Supernova Carbon, which makes it easy to do fun projects in almost all conditions.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      I hope to inspire others to bring Majesty Skis with them to the mountains and to generally get outside as often as possible. These are trustworthy skis with good quality that lasts for a long time. In addition, I hope to travel more with the guys from Majesty Norway, create projects together and develop the brand more, here in Norway! Lastly, I have some cool ideas regarding spring skiing and I'm sure Majesty skis are perfect for those projects too.
