Rider Bio: Grete Eliassen

Home Town: Salt Lake City, Utah

In September 2010, Grete and Red Bull hosted the World Premier of her film, “Say My Name.” It’s an all-women’s film that sets a new bar for ski films, and two years of hard work certainly paid off. It’s a great representation of where Eliassen is at with her ski career—progressing, always, setting records, and upping her game in the backcountry.

Eliassen set a women’s world record in the spring of 2010 at the Canyons Resort in Utah by launching 31 feet into the air off a 30-foot hip jump. She’s won the X Games SuperPipe and U.S. Open Slopestyle, designed signature pro-model skis and filmed lines in the backcountry. As for the upcoming Olympics at Sochi in 2014, she says we’ll have to wait and see… -MH
