Caroline Kessler


Back for a second year of ski testing with us, Caroline brings a youthful energy to our group. She’s taken a position as a marketing and sales coordinator for Nordica, but don’t let that make you think she is biased—her reviews are honest and full of integrity. She gets out about 80 days per year and thinks that her most important piece of gear are her boots and mittens. Apparently, she wants to keep her hands and feet warm. Caroline loves to ski through soft moguls, powder, and woods on her Nordica Santa Ana 110 skis, and when she’s not doing that, she’s mountain biking, playing soccer, and creating lovely pieces of art. If she were an animal, she’d be a shark, but then she wouldn’t get to ski! Maybe there’re shark ski areas down there somewhere? The ocean’s a big place.
