SAM GOODHUE
Sam grew up on a farm in central Massachusetts, where skiing mainly consisted of east coast park and backcountry glades in less-than-ideal conditions. He graduated from the ice in 2016 and moved to go to school at the University of Utah. The epic powder skiing, backcountry access, and ski culture were also deciding factors in bringing him to Utah. Four years later, he is skiing more than he ever imagined and loving it more every day. "Skiing is about creativity, self-expression, and building relationships with others who enjoy the sport just as much as I do," says Sam.

Lori Kelly
Lori is from Ogden Valley UT, and learned to snowboard at age 17 when her best friend cousin Trevor took her night skiing in a blizzard at PowMow. Her first run, in complete vertigo whiteout, took a little over an hour — but with each chair she got more confident and shaved minutes off her time. That adventure has led to a passion to share the outdoors with others in everything including work, play, and travel. She still spends most of her time here in Salt Lake City, adventuring often to Wyoming, Idaho, California, and even Whistler, BC a time or two. On off days, Lori is out hiking and training her dog Teddy, playing guitar, crafting, and meal prepping.

What would you rate 10/10?
Utah’s weather for about 350 days a year.

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?
I would say that my husband and I selling our house near Baltimore and quitting our good jobs at almost 30 to move to Utah with no jobs or prospects was the best dumb thing we ever did. To quote Warren Miller regarding moving to a ski town, “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do.” We haven’t looked back once. Oh, and we have jobs.
Julieana Rusnak
Julieana is a big mountain skier who grew up on the Colorado Front Range and has had a passion for pointing her skis straight down the hill ever since she was 3 and her dad made the mistake of looking the other way for a second at the top of the chairlift. This will be her first year at Solitude and she can’t wait to explore every single inch of it! When she’s not getting sendy at Solitude, she’ll be going after big objectives in the backcountry or maybe even competing in a few Freeride World Qualifier competitions. No matter where you find her, she’ll be stoked and ready to shred!
