Marci Krivonen


Originally from Montana, Marci grew up near the mountains and can't get enough of them. She began in broadcasting in Missoula, Montana where she anchored Montana Public Radio's local Evening Edition news program. She then picked up a camera and tripod and worked for Missoula's local CBS television station as a reporter. Shortly after that, she returned to radio and became the Assistant News Director at a radio station in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Marci began at Aspen Public Radio in 2007 as the station's morning host and reporter. Although you can occasionally hear Marci in the mornings, she is now quite content to be sleeping in and reporting all day. When not at the station, Marci is on her road bike, meeting people, or skiing.

One of the U.S. women competing at the World Cup races in Aspen is coming back from a knee injury. This season Resi Stiegler of Jackson Hole is working to again be among the best racers in the world. 

Stiegler will race in slalom over the weekend. It’s among her first competitions after ACL surgery following a crash during a January training run. Last season, her best competition was at the World Cup in Aspen, where she placed eleventh. She says the Aspen race course is one of her favorites with its rolling hills and curves. She wants a solid race here.
