Kjersti (30) has been at WX for 9 years, finally earning a podium, bronze, in 2012 to add to her 2010 WXE silver. She's been learning how to spin backside better and has her 540 down. Has been practicing Cab spins, switch backside and she's better on rail. Integrating those into her run makes her a podium threat in Tignes. The Norwegian is a three-time Winter Olympian ('02, '06, '10), earning halfpipe bronze in Torino in 2006 to prevent an American podium sweep.
