Come game day, Mikaela Shiffrin is set to hit the slopes. In her High Sierra U.S. Ski Team backpack: snacks, a GRID foam roller and a Paperblanks journal where she scribbles quotes that leave the Olympic gold medalist (her events start on NBC February 12) feeling “inspired or mentally tough.”
The 22-year-old glides Us through the rest.
“I have at least three pairs of Oakley sunglasses at all times. They’re my sponsors, so I have loads of them. They have a new Frogskins one that is so cool.”
“I carry a Red Bull water bottle and a Red Bull. It’s easier on my stomach than coffee.”
“While I was in New Zealand at a ski camp, I got this Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. It’s good for burns, dry skin and cuts, but I use it for my lips. It’s super-hydrating.”
In the Zone
“Every bag I carry, I have my Bose wireless headphones. They’re so comfortable and great to have on a plane.”
“I have a punch card for a bakery in California’s Squaw Valley Ski Resort called Wildflour Baking Company. We had a race there last year and I’ve been there for ski camps. They’re the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had.”
What else is in Shiffrin’s bag?
