The Spyder team is excited to announce its newest member, Amie Engerbretson. Amie joins a fierce list of lady shredders at Spyder, all who push the limits both on and off the mountain. As Amie said: “Spyder supports their female athletes, which shows, and of course that is very important to me. I am thrilled to be part of an amazing company, with a long history in skiing, and honored to be part of a team of such incredible women!”
Raised on the snowy slopes of the Sierra mountains, Amie got the ‘bug’ for skiing from the foundation built by her family. Her father is a professional skier, it was inevitable that she skied at an early age; Amie was skiing at ten months. Forming a deep connection and love for the mountains throughout her childhood, the Tahoe native quickly made a name for herself in the world of back country skiing.
It’s hard to keep up with Amie’s adventures when Mother Nature and the NOAA forecast are instructing her next move. On any given week, Amie can be found crushing lines in Alaska, dropping cliffs in Jackson, slashing blower pow in Aspen, skiing pillows in Japan or catching the storm of the century in Utah. We may not be able to predict where her next move will be, but are confident that no matter what she is doing on the mountain, she is having a lot of fun. As Amie put it: “Most of all, skiing is really fun. That is my favorite part hands down. Skiing has put a smile on my face since I was a little girl and it still does to this day. I love the feeling of freedom, I love the speed, I love sending, heck I love après... all of which are fun!” We couldn’t agree more!
Amie has her eyes set on skiing more terrain in Alaska or an exotic trip to Iceland. As Amie continues her quest for the biggest and best lines, she remains grounded in her roots and contends that there is nowhere better to be than Squaw Valley on a pow day.
When Amie isn’t skiing, you can find her mountain biking, hosting TV shows, trail running, leading yoga classes, modeling, hiking and taking the best ‘Ninja kick’ picture Instagram has ever seen.
We are thrilled to welcome Amie to the team and believe her many talents, both on and off the mountain, will be a great addition to Spyder!
