Kaylin Richardson


The mountians are my happy place. Growing up in Minnesota I did not have access to mountains (my home ski area, Hyland Hills, is 175 ft/54m vertical). I remember our first family trip to Colorado and it was pure magic. That magic has never diminished for me. I started racing at age nine and made it to the US Ski Team at 15 years old. After ten years racing internationally and competing in the Torino and Vancouver Olympics, I retired from the World Cup in 2010. I wanted to explore the mountains without gates and courses dictating where and when I could turn. Post racing I fell even deeper in love with skiing when I discovered the beauty and adventure of the backcountry. As a reincarnated big-mountain skier, I get to travel to some of the most staggering corners of the world to do what I love and what makes it even better is that I get to share those experiences with others. I am one lucky girl.

1. Favorite Dalbello Boot
Lupo Carbon T.I.
2. What do you use this boot for?
Touring / Big mountain and resort skiing
3. Why do you like this boot?
The Lupo Carbon T.I. sounded like it was too good to be true - a super lightweight touring boot that had the rigidity and design to ski like a freeride boot. But it is all those things. Comfortable and maneuverable for the way up, hard-charging and high-performing on the way down.
4. Why do you like being a part of the Dalbello team?
Dalbello is always trying to improve upon their last boot, never satisfied with the status quo. You see it in their products as they push the limits of what we thought possible and you see it with their variety and caliber of athletes of which I am proud.
5. How long have you been riding for Dalbello?
Since 6 years
