Heather McPhie is proud she’s from Montana.

The Bozeman native learned to ski at Bridger Bowl at age 3, and has been competing in freestyle moguls since she was 12. In 2010, she competed in the winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The first week of February was busy for McPhie, a 27-year-old U.S. Ski Team member. She placed second and third at Feb. 2 and 4 World Cup mogul competitions in Deer Valley, Utah, and she announced a new partnership with Moonlight Basin, as the resort’s athlete ambassador.

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to connect with Moonlight Basin, and to shred around an awesome mountain, [and] to represent something I really believe in, which is the skiing here, the people here, and the whole industry here,” McPhie said in a video interview with Moonlight. (check out the video here.)

The goal of the partnership is cross-promotion, and ultimately to make it a long-term relationship, a representative for Moonlight said.

While she trains with the U.S. Ski Team, McPhie is living in Park City, Utah. As one of the top 10 women in the world in freestyle mogul skiing, she has her eye on the 2014 Olympic podium in Sochi, Russia.

McPhie will be at Moonlight Basin for an event on Feb. 24.
