Kari Traa is a woman with a guy’s mind, according to herself. She is a courageous lady, and she isn’t afraid of anything. She thinks that’s why she’s so good today.
It’s January 11th, and God is up for a snowball fight. I’m sitting on a train station in Voss and waiting for Kari Traa, a well known mogul skier. We have agreed to have an interview over a cup of coffee at the local cafeteria. When she arrives at 12 o’clock sharp, my suitcase is full of snow. We walk down to the cafeteria and order two cups of cappuccino and two doughnuts.
Okay, are you ready? How are you today?
- I’m fine, thank you. I love to spend time here in Voss. It’s wonderful eating my mother’s food and skiing all day long.
Kari was born and raised in Voss and that is where she learned mogul skiing. Mogul skiing is a kind of alpine skiing, but the slopes have a lot of bumps and moguls, and the slopes are between 220 and 250 meters.
