NMU Grad Saluted by SKI Magazine


An International Women's Day feature on the SKI Magazine website saluted NMU alumna Jeannie Thoren as one of six influential women who have helped shape the sport. The 1968 grad and 2014 NMU Distinguished Alumni Award recipient is credited with changing the way the downhill skiing industry thinks about female skiers. She developed the “Thoren Theory” as a method for improving women skiers' technique through modified equipment, then went on to operate the Jeannie Thoren Women's Ski Center in Vail, Colo.
