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.

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. She saw success at Deer Valley once again in 2015, earning her first World Cup win on the Champion mogul run. Oakley battled injuries througout the 2015-16 season, but she plans to return in full force for 2017.

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.

Oakley spends all the time she can back in California, at the beach with friends and family. She recently received her MBA (Master's in Business Administration) from 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.
