About Kaya

The most dominant skier in women's slopestyle's history, Turski, 27, has 7 XG medals – all slopestyle. After skipping XG 2015 as she continued to recover from two surgeries (left ACL and right shoulder, June 2015), Turski started competing again in August (5th, Audi Quattro Winter Games NZ). She will compete in select events in 2016 while making the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea her main goal. She's so dominant that she has only missed the slopestyle podium four times out of 29 slopestyle starts since 2008. However, she broke her left arm in early Dec. training for the Dew Tour and she missed XG Aspen 2016.
