KATIE SAWAYA

A team  Head Coach

Hometown: Kentfield, California

This will be Katie’ third season with BBSEF. She comes to us with a vast ski racing background.  She is from Marin County California and grew up skiing at Kirkwood.  She was very successful as a J3 there under the coaching of Darrell Whitaker.

Katie spent her J2 years at Rowmark Academy and excelled in speed.  The time spent at both Kirkwood and Rowmark gave Katie some great insight and knowledge that she will pass on to our kids here at BBSEF.

Katie raced for the University of British Columbia then finished her racing career at the College of Idaho.

Though she is a confessed speed skier, she can rip in slalom.  Katie will be a great fit for our U16 kids

In the off season Katie is a firefighter for the BLM working with RJ Klotz.  Her first  assignment was the Fort Collins Fire in Colorado, June 2012.
