The cousin of Alpine Meadows Freestyle Team founder, Clay Beck, K.C. Oakley stuck with the family tradition. She joined the Alpine Meadows team at 13 and made the three-hour commute to Tahoe from Piedmont, CA every weekend all winter. At 17, she narrowed her focus to just moguls and began competing in NorAm events. At the end of the 2011 season, she captured her first two NorAm wins, the overall NorAm title and a silver medal at U.S. Championships, earning her invite to the U.S. Ski Team.

Oakley took advantage of the resources provide by the U.S. Ski Team and has scored 13 World Cup top-10 results since being named to the Team. Oakley finished the 2013 season with yet another U.S. Championship podium at Heavenly Mountain.

Winter 2014 was a recovery season for Oakley, who was battling injuries in both shins but still managed a top-ten finish at one of the circuit’s most difficult courses, Deer Valley.

FIRST TRACKS
When Oakley was 13 years old, she began competing in freeskiing competitions, but she realized at the age of 17 that her real passion was for moguls.

OFF THE SNOW
Oakley spends all the time she can back in California, at the beach with friends and family. She’s also working on her MBA (Master's in Business Administration) at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. The rest of her efforts go towards her foundation, Jill's Legacy. The foundation honors her best friend, Jill Costello, who passed away in June 2010 from lung cancer as a healthy, young and non-smoking student-athlete. “In her honor, in order to help others who face this deathly diagnosis, we spread awareness that anyone can get lung cancer and raise funds for young scientific researchers so that we can help increase the 15.5% survival rate,” she says.
