Skis.com Names Mirjam Jaegar as Ski Ambassador

This sounds pretty cool:

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., August 25, 2010 — Skis.com, the ultimate online ski resource, has signed Swiss pro-skier Mirjam Jaeger as its ambassador to the freestyle skiing community. In her position as ambassador, Jaeger will contribute short essays to the company’s blog (Skis.com ) and its Facebook and Twitter pages. She will also film several educational videos for the web site on topics including how to slide rails and the beginners guide to using the half pipe.

“We are so excited to have Mirjam represent Skis.com,” said President and CEO Steve Kopitz. “She is mesmerizing to watch both on and off the slope. We are looking forward to hearing what tips she has to offer on freestyle skiing.”

A longtime skier, Jaeger became interested in snowboarding in 1991. She quickly quit skiing, entered into snowboarding competitions, enrolled into a sports school, and booked her first sponsors, all by age 16.

Her love of skiing returned and she began practicing the sport again in 2003. It soon became so important to her that she stopped snowboarding altogether and, in 2005, started to concentrate exclusively on skiing. She keeps a busy schedule, competing all over the world, including at the X-Games, US Open and European Open.

Kinda stoked to learn a little more freestyle stuff and see some decent videos of rail work, etc. Mostly so that I can destroy the edges of my new Nordicas because it sounds like fun.
