Ali Berlin


Ali Berlin is joining us again as a ski tester this year and we couldn’t be happier! Her experience on skis and her analytical skills are extremely useful for us in gleaning as much accurate information as possible. She’s been skiing since she was three, and as a ski instructor, she logs a ton of days on snow. That is invaluable experience and we appreciate her input. On the few days per year that she’s not on snow, she’s riding horses, swimming, and hiking. There’s a lot of skiers out there that give her inspiration, but Glen Plake, Hillary Lindh, and Alberto Tomba top her list. She loves how her boots match her Helly Hansen gear, and who can blame her? Since Unicorns do not actually exist (so she says), she’d want to be a Wild Mustang running free if she could be any animal. Ali has a great sense of what a ski can do, and we love hearing her feedback year after year.
