Katie Summerhayes - Slopestyle
Katie Summerhayes Slopestyle Sochi 2014

At only 18 years old Katie Summerhayes from Sheffield has made a huge mark on the freestyle ski community, continuously impressing people with her enthusiasm and fast learning especially as her career began at the age of 6 on the UK dry slopes.

Katie now spends most of her life on the snow, it’s a real passion for her, always comparing herself to others and wanting to know how she can improve. She now spends most of her time with the ski team following the snow around the world from Europe, to New Zealand and to America.

Katie is best friends with Woodsy, also from Sheffield, and has a good chance of beating him to the podium at Sochi with the women’s event 2 days before the men’s. If Katie wins she apparently intends to celebrate with a shopping spree in New York!

In 2013 Katie had to have knee surgery and took 7 months off to recover but returned with style earning a silver in the World Cup and 2nd place at the Austrian Open. She is the first woman in competition to achieve a switch 12, 3 ½ spins after approaching a jump…backwards!

Competing several times in the Brits in Tignes and Laax she has come first in the Rail Jam, big air and slopestyle. Katie also competed in the 1st Youth Winter Olympic Games.
