If you are born in and grow up in the Northeast Kingdom of VT and are athletically inclined, you’re probably a skier, snowboarder, or cyclist. Ida is no different. She went with skiing, of the Nordic variety. After attending high school at the Burke Mountain Academy, she went to Dartmouth College, where she majored in Biology and Psychology and now she has come full circle and is back teaching at Burke Mountain Academy. Oh yeah, and she was also a member of the US Ski Team for nine years, went to 2 Olympics, numerous World Championships as a US Ski Team member, was a National Champion and a World Cup medalist. Ida retired in March of 2019, only to go run a sub 3 hour NYC Marathon a few months later in November. But I don’t think anyone expected Ida to slow down much anyway. Now in addition to teaching and to her role at Little Bellas, Ida is a staple in her VT community and local trails sharing the joys of riding, skiing, and being outside!
