Ingrid Backstrom

Our very own home-town hero, hailing from Normandy Park, WA, Ingrid grew up just south of Seattle and on the slopes of nearby Crystal Mountain. With parents on the Crystal Mountain ski patrol, Ingrid was turned loose with brothers Arne and Ralph to explore the rugged terrain of the Cascades at a young age. A background in ski racing proved to be perfect preparation for a freeriding career that's spanned over a decade and includes key segments in multiple Matchstick and Sherpa’s Cinema productions, Warren Miller flicks, and the movie "Steep."

Back in Washington State after a number of seasons in Squaw Valley, Ingrid currently spends her time spreading her passion for the sport to future generations as the freeride coach at Crystal Mountain.
