Keri Herman grew up in the flat lands of Bloomington, Minnesota. Skiing wasn’t a part of her childhood. She played ice hockey in high school and after graduation, moved to Denver to go to college where she graduated in 2005 with a BSBA in Finance and Marketing. Keri learned how to ski in Colorado at the age of 21 and instead of pursuing a career on Wall Street as she expected, she instead moved to Breckenridge to ski, where she has lived ever since.
We’ve known Keri Herman since 2005, when she moved to Breck. It’s been amazing to see her skiing progress as she won countless comps and worked her way up through the ranks into the X-games and the Olympics. On the mountain, Keri is constantly smiling, she skis because it’s what she loves most. Along with being one of the top female skiers in the world, Keri also has a passion for design which lead to Keri helping us design our brand new women’s line.

Skiing Mantra: “It’s not just about the material stuff. It’s not just about making money. It’s just fun. It makes me happy every single day and as long as it’s fun I’m going to keep doing this.”
