Emily Crofton


Emily Crofton learned to ski at Mad River Glen, so she’s got a good grip on how to ski moguls. She’s been skiing for 89% of her life and these days she gets in about 50 days per year. That type of experience, combined with her youthful energy and enthusiasm, is an amazing asset to have at our ski test. She currently skis on the Salomon Stella 106, and her favorite skiers are Shane McConkey and Angel Collinson—two absolute legends. Apparently, Emily is a fan of going fast, since she would be a Cheetah over any other animal. As far as terrestrial animals go, that’s a pretty good choice. When she’s not ripping up the slopes, she likes to climb, hike, cook, and crochet, making her a diversely talented individual who we were glad to have try out some skis for us this year.
