- Kristen Ulmer - The Art of Fear Melanie Johnson & Jenn Foster 30:24
Melanie and Jenn interview Kristen Ulmer the author of The Art of Fear. Kristen is a thought leader, master facilitator, and fear specialist who radically challenges existing norms around the subject of this deeply misunderstood emotion. Starting out as a mogul specialist on the US Ski team, Kristen more notoriously became recognized as being the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for enormous cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents, she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other dangerous sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking, and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most extreme woman athletes in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.
