My name is Kash VanKirk and I love everything outdoors. I'm a ski racer, cyclist, and outdoorsman. My story started with the influence of my parents who introduced me to the outdoors. From wearing a batman suit on the bunny run of a ski hill to whipping around a fly rod while its line was tangled in a bush as I yelled at my dad to help, I've found a life in the outdoors. Now it's turned into a passion of sport from flying down a hill at speeds that seem like 100 mph on flat skinny sticks, or enduring 100 mile bike rides, or having the perfect precision and timing to get a fish's attention.
I grew up in Lake Tahoe which has molded my lifestyle and love for telemark skiing. I have continually been pushing my sport’s boundaries in the backcountry and hope to progress it for the next generation of freeheel rippers. PT Revolution has given me the tools, encouragement, and inspiration to better myself as an athlete. Their staff are peers whose goals are to keep their clients strong; I wouldn’t be where I am today with out their help.
I’ve been skiing since I was two and racing since I was 5. I fell in love with the sport and have been doing it for about 10 years now. I’ve traveled all over the world for skiing to places like Italy, Switzerland, Argentina, Austria, and more. In the off-season, I still ski. But, I also mountain bike, wake-surf, ocean surf, river surf, rock climb, river raft, and ride my ebike all around town. Some of my biggest accomplishments are winning all my U-14 races two years ago, making it to U-16 Nationals last year, and ranking first in downhill in the nation.
In the winter I focus on competing in Far West alpine ski races. I also enjoy freeskiing with my friends, finding sick jumps, and skiing powder.
In the summer I am a NICA mountain bike racer, BMX racer, TAMBA volunteer trail builder, bike park dirt jumper, and high alpine fisherman.
Two cool things about me are that I have skied for the last 76 straight months, and I am the youngest finisher of the Gunbarrel 25 at six years old.
Bo Outland has a genuine passion for mountain biking. Her mountain bike journey started 3 years ago, and its been downhill since. After relocating to Tahoe, she was delighted to discover the similarities between mountain biking and skiing. At Northstar, she was fortunate enough to gain invaluable experience by completing multiple laps each time she rode. Bo's interests in mountain biking range from enduro racing to free-riding, jumps, and steep trails. For her, mountain biking serves as an opportunity to both clear her mind and challenge herself to improve while having fun.
Originally from Denver, CO, Brian grew up skiing before switching to snowboarding at age 10. His love for snowboarding brought him to Tahoe in 2011, where he found his passion for splitboarding and big mountain freeriding. He has been a competitive snowboarder for 9 years, dedicating most of his Winter season to traveling around North America in his van for freeride competitions and participating in a number of unique freestyle & race events in between.
His dog Rocker is always by his side, whether it’s sitting copilot on the way to the next competition, or deep in the mountains on another one of their countless splitboarding adventures.
During the Summer you can find Brian racing mountain bikes, completing off-season training at PT Revolution, or on a crazy mission to get in some extra turns on his board, which he still rides 12 months out of the year.
Born in Maryland, Mike learned to ski on the small hills of Western Maryland and Southern Pennsylvania. After getting his bachelor's degree, he decided to leave the east coast in 2016 and moved straight to South Lake Tahoe to pursue his passion for skiing. Mike has coached the Freeride Ski Team at Kirkwood Mountain, and has also competed in Freeride World Qualifier events over the past 6 years. In the winter, you'll most likely find Mike skiing at Kirkwood or ski touring and snowmobiling in Tahoe and the Eastern Sierra. When he's not skiing, Mike likes to truck camp (hopefully near a hot spring), mountain bike, play the drums, hang with his pup Levi, and dive for trash in Lake Tahoe and its tributaries. Mike is a 100 Ton US Coast Guard certified boat captain, an FAA Part 107 Drone Operator, and also a volunteer for Clean Up The Lake.
