We caught up with Brooke Potter at SIA to learn a little more about this girl who likes to spend her days after the storm in the streets instead of on the slopes.
Orage: Hey Brooke, thanks for taking the time to sit down and have coffee with us. First off, how old are you?
Brooke: I’m 20 years old.
Orage: And where are you from?
Brooke: I’m from Maryland.
Orage: But not living there currently, right?
Brooke: Nope, I live in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Orage: How do you spend your time in Breck?
Orage: How long have you been in Breck?
Brooke: I’ve been living here for 4 years with my roommate.
Orage: What’s your favourite food?
Brooke: Ummm, that’s a tough one. I really just love everything Italian.
Orage: Can we narrow it down? Pizza or spaghetti?
Orage: You’re the girl who gets the pizzaghetti?
Brooke: [Laughs] Yes! I would absolutely get the pizzaghetti.
Orage: Have you read the Harry Potter series?
Brooke: No. I know. How wrong is this?
Orage: I think it’s wrong. You’re really missing out on this generation’s best saga.
Brooke: Well I’ve watched most of the movies, I think.
Orage: [Frowning]. You should really read the books. You won’t be the same Potter afterwards. Moving on, what would you like to do later apart from skiing?
Brooke: I would like to be able to work in the ski industry. I am currently at school but I decided to take a little break and get some skiing done. I’ve been studying sustainability.
Orage: I’ve met some many people in the last few days that have been or are studying sustainbility. Is this something that’s prevalent around Denver?
Brooke: Oh yeah, the University here has an awesome sustainability program.
Orage: What is the last book you read?
Brooke: Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
Orage: What album are you listening to right now?
Brooke: Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon.
Orage: Coffee or tea?
Orage: What other activities do you like to do?
Brooke: Oh man, I do a lot of mountain biking during summer months.
Orage: How many days do you ski per year?
Brooke: Around 150, including summer skiing at Woodward.
Orage: That’s so rad. You probably ski in a year more the average people ski in a decade. Thanks for your time Brooke. Where can people learn more about you?
Brooke: Check out my video Ultraviolence and you can follow me on Instagram at @brooke_potter.
