Hall of Fame Nominee
Sugarloaf skier Kristean Porter was the star of her era as a U.S. Freestyle Ski Team aerialist and combined skier in the mid-90s as a World Champion and a two-time overall World Cup titlist.
She excelled in aerials and was among the best in acro or ballet skiing, and a top finisher in moguls. Porter made her World Cup debut in 1989 and took just a month to score her first podium. A year later she picked up the first of four World Championship medals, taking bronze in aerials. Over the next four seasons she was one of the strongest overall freestyle skiers in the world, skiing in both aerials and acro and picking up 29 podiums with six wins. Her gold in combined at the 1995 World Championships highlighted her career. But it was her back-to-back overall titles in the grueling season-long World Cup circuit that most made her proud.
