Name: Heidi Voelker
Profession: Deer Valley Ambassador of Skiing
Hobbies: road biking, hiking with my dog and skiing
Passion: My biggest passion is my family
Life Notes: “How did I get into skiing?” I am the youngest of 4 children so I followed my older sister and brothers footsteps. My father was a ski instructor at a little ski area in Massachusetts which allowed us to have ski privileges. Skiing and watching Tamara Mckinney, Phil and Steve Mahre on TV gave me the inspiration to dream.
“Why do I ski”: Skiing has been my life and part of me for 45 years. I love to ski because it makes me smile and free's my soul.
What the Women to Women project means to you: The W2W project shows how determined Blizzard and Tecnica are to be the best in the industry and deliver the best product that will allow women to enjoy the sport of skiing and make improvements in their technique. Also, it shows how much they believe in and support the female athletes on the Blizzard/Tecnica team. Who help guide future product decisions.
Women understand what they want but also
have an open mind to new ideas and directions that
will improve, elevate and expande their horizons.
