"Madison Ostergren experiencing the magic of Murren, Switzerland. The ski area has all of these little wooden shacks and homes scattered throughout the resort. It was hard not to shoot every building."

"Madison Ostergren skiing some iconic cold smoke conditions at Grand Targhee resort. The next day a storm rolled in and we got stuck in Targhee for 3 days because of road closures. We were okay with that."

Lindsey Vonn, Doug Coombs, and Nick Goepper are all skiing legends that grew up honing their skills at tiny ski areas with only a couple hundred feet of vertical. We’re going to make a bold prediction and say that, someday, Madison Ostergren, who grew up lapping slalom courses at Hickory Hills—a Michigan ski area with 237 feet of vertical and two towropes—will be on that list. ⛷
We first noticed Ostergren when we saw a picture of her skiing and assumed it was a shot of some well-established pro. We were surprised to find out that she hasn’t even graduated from college yet. Just last month, Ostergren, who’s a senior at Westminster College in Utah, finished up her NCAA ski racing career, then hopped on a plane to Europe to ski alongside Warren Miller star Marcus Caston. It was her first trip to Europe and the rising star was wowed. “We skied spring conditions and then, when we got to Murren, Switzerland, it dumped three feet of snow,” she says. “I found myself standing in the mountains and smiling and giggling.” ⛷
Next up for Ostergren: graduation in December; then she’ll begin skiing full time. “I have a lot of goals,” she says. “We would always go to the Warren Miller premier when I was a kid in Michigan. It was always my dream to be one of those skiers in one of those movies.”
