Amie pauses for a minute atop KT-22. She says, “Any day with snow on KT is a good day, heck I like to hike up to McConkey's in the summer. Shane McConkey is my ultimate inspiration. I adore the time I get to spend with his wife Sherry and their beautiful daughter Ayla. Shane's legacy lives on through them and the Shane McConkey Foundation.” - ©Weston Walker

While Amie’s mom went into labor in the world-famous Wildflour Baking Co. Cookie Shop, her dad was competing in an extreme skiing comp on The Fingers at Squaw Valley. To this day he has a line named after him (Engerbretson’s). The first time Amie road KT-22 she was four and as Amie recalls, her dad “kicked her off the edge and hoped for the best.” To this day it’s her favorite lift she’s ever skied. - ©Weston Walker

“There's a really great women's ski scene in Squaw. I love when I get to shred with Elyse Saugstad, Ingrid Backstrom, Michelle Parker, Jackie Passo, Lel Tone, and so many more. Squaw has the best women's scene in the country. All we need is Rachael Burks and we'd be complete.” - Amie Engerbretson  - ©Weston Walker
