After graduating from the University of Vermont, Hedda Peterson left the Green Mountains for longer runs in Crested Butte . She wound up here at Powder Mountain stuck with a bunch of rowdy tester much to her dismay. Even so, judging by the wide grin on her face, she is enjoying her time skiing between widely-spaced trees and blankets of snow. Below is a little insight on the infamous Ms. Peterson.
