Personal: Hailey began skiing with her brother as a way to stay fit for mountain biking through the winter...She fell in love with the sport and chose to pursue skiing instead of biking...Participates with the Women Ski Coaches Association, which addresses the wage gap between male and female coaches...When she's not striding, her favorite technique, she can be found baking, oil painting, fly fishing, or studying.
