Kara LaPoint grew up in Truckee, California, where she embraced the “mountain kid” life as fully as possible — skiing, running, hiking, biking, swimming, and exploring her outdoor playground any and every way she could! Today she competes across the world as a professional triathlete and mountain biker, but still takes full advantage of the winter season to return to her roots in both Alpine and cross country skiing, with a special passion for earning her turns.
