At just 19 years old, Katharine Ogden has pushed boundaries and proved early in the 2015-16 season that she can give the senior field a run for their money. After a remarkable U.S. Championships performance in Houghton, MI, she joined the Junior Worlds team to represent the U.S. in Rasnov, Romania. She carried her momentum and claimed a top 10 and two top 15s. Her efforts in U.S. SuperTours and Romania landed her a debut on the World Cup circuit during the 2016 Ski Tour Canada, where she was on the cusp of World Cup points in the races in Canmore, Alberta.
Ogden graduates from Stratton Mountain School in the spring of 2016 and will be taking a gap year to figure out her future skiing career.
