Ella Tollefson

Chief Media Orchestrator

Ella first hit the slopes at 18 months and found the slopes of Mt. Hood, Oregon as her year-round playground. She began racing in her 5th year and had a special appetite for speed. She had lots of podiums in her short career as a racer but found the love of freeskiing and photography along the way. She is currently working on her degree in Art Photography and enjoys surfing, skiing and traveling with Bean, the wonder dog.
