Corbeaux Baselayers Ambassador Hannah Rudd – Nordic Skier - Olympic Hopeful
Hannah Rudd grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and started Nordic skiing as soon as she could walk. She started focusing on Nordic skiing during High School and competed in both Jr and Sr Nationals. College took Hannah to the University of Alaska in Anchorage where she competed on the collegiate circuit. College sports is always a balance between schoolwork, side jobs and sports, so upon graduation, Hannah made the decision to focus on skiing full time.
Taking it to the Next Level:
Hannah joined a pro Nordic ski team in Bozeman that consists of 4 girls and 4 boys. 4-time Olympian Andrew Newell is their coach. With the Beijing Olympics in sight, the quest begins to lay down some solid results at Sr. Nationals and get her FIS Points down so she can get some World Cup starts under her belt. Hannah competes in both Classic and Skate events anything from 5K to 50K. She calls herself a “sprinter” and her best event is the 5K Skate Race.
Big Achievements to Date:
Hannah was a member of Team USA and competed in the 2018 Jr. World Championships in Switzerland. She took home the Gold as first female in the 50K Tour of Anchorage in 2018. She had several All-American results at the US Junior National Championships and was a four-year collegiate skier for NCAA.
Hannah’s Perfect Nordic Ski Day:
Wake up to coffee and French Toast. Set out on a O.D. (Over Distance- 3hours+) Ski with friends or solo to commune with the Montana wilderness. Come home to a big lunch. She bakes and cooks all her own food.
Hannah is fluent in Spanish and has done multiple mission trips/service projects helping kids in Honduras and Mexico. She is an advocate fort underserved youth and was a ski coach in Minneapolis. Lastly, she is an Ambassador for Fast & Female (Women in Sports).
Hannah was a Corbeaux women's activewear fan before she became a Corbeaux Ambassador. She was familiar with most all the top Nordic outerwear brands but feels like Corbeaux is one of the best baselayer brands on the market and is the best fit for her lifestyle.
