Susan Dorn


Susan Dorn has a very cool career that really shows that she’s devoted much of her life to the sport of skiing. Susan is the Executive Director of the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum located right here in Stowe. She has been skiing essentially her entire life and these days participates in Masters Ski Racing, something that a few of our testers have dabbled with. She describes her preferred terrain as groomed black diamonds and those are the trails where her precise, smooth skiing really shines. Her current skis of choice are largely focused on on-piste carving and include a Rossi GS ski, Volkl slalom skis, and a pair of Elan Insomnias. Susan was a great addition to our test and we’re looking forward to a future article on Chairlift Chat focusing on her involvement with the museum.
