October 8, 2001 ¿ Sun Valley, ID- SCOTT USA, Inc., a leading manufacturer of wintersport accessories and apparel announced it has recently hired a new wintersport sales representative for Utah. Krista Moroge, a competitive snowboarder, will provide a specialized focus on the Park City and Salt Lake City areas.
During the winter months Moroge is also the head coach for Snowbird’s competition snowboard team and competes herself, specializing in the half-pipe. During the summer she spends every free minute at the local skate park.
“Some of the kids at the skate park make fun of me because I am a 27 year old girl and I spend more time at the park and can skate better than a lot of the guys. They find that funny for some reason”, said Moroge.
Moroge brings a skate and snowboard influence to the sales team. Her understanding and involvement within the wintersport industry is a great asset to SCOTT USA. Moroge, raised in Buffalo, N.Y., moved out West where she spent the next five years as a snowboard instructor in Colorado and Utah before joining the SCOTT USA sales force. “I have known Krista for years and I am psyched she is on the SCOTT USA team”, said Jon Atencio, Snow Team Manger. “She really brings a lot to the table.”
