Moments like this I often ask myself… HOW DID I GET HERE? I don’t really have the answer but I am filled with so much gratitude for the path that has led me to where I am. Just over two years ago I made a huge leap of faith to pursuit my dreams as a professional skier and model. I left behind a half dozen seasonal jobs that included ski tech, line cook, massage therapist and cleaning lady in pursuit of my passion. I lived out of my Subaru, crashed on my little bro’s couch, ate his food, chased snowstorms, worked my butt off and followed my intuition. I never could have imagined that this journey would take me so many times around the world, that I would get to meet so many incredible people and that I would be standing where I am. I can’t say that the road was always easy but it has been filled with so much growth and reward. Feeling super grateful to be right here, right now. Thank you for following along with me along my journey and for sharing all of your support and positive energy. #onelove #howdidiget_here (at Wanaka South Island NZ)

#throwback to one of my very first photoshoots. I’d traveled to #Bali for a 6 week surf trip after the ski season. When I arrived I discovered that there was a decent market for blonde models. I wasn’t totally comfortable in front of the camera at this point so I was grateful for the beautiful, awkward cows and twisting tree roots to add to the structure of the photos. Bali turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. I can’t wait to go back to experience the culture and surf. Photo: Andre Arktov

carpediemalltheway asked: Hey Sierra! You're a very stunning woman and I enjoy following your travel adventures and stories :) AND you have amazing hair- what do you do to keep it that healthy and that looong, haha!? All the best!
Hi love! Why thank you so much for the beautiful compliment. I think my hair is so thick and long in part from my Filipina genetics, all my aunties have super long, thick hair. Also I eat a really healthy, organic, whole foods diet. I don’t dye my hair and try to only wash it once a week and avoid chemical products. I feel the toil that harsh heat takes on my hair when I’m modeling and the stylist are using a lot of chemicals and heat so I don’t even own a blowdryer, curling or flat iron. A little coconut oil helps to hydrate dry hair and a dash of flour or corn starch will dry up oily roots.. I think less is more when it comes to hair. Much love! xox Sierra
Sierra Quitiquit hat wohl allen diesen Winter in Valhalla den Kopf verdreht, doch die Amerikanerin ist nicht nur Model, sondern ist auch eine der inspirierendsten Persönlichkeiten des Skisports. Was sie antreibt, wie sie ihre beiden Jobs unter einen Hut bringt und noch vieles mehr hat sie Outdoormind im Interview erzählt.
One of my favorite parts about being home is spending time in the kitchen and putting lots of love in to refueling my body. This is my #greenjuice recipe: 1 cucumber, 1/2 stalk celery, 1 head of kale, greens from 1 bunch of beets, 1-2 lemons, large handful of parsley leaves and stems, 1-2 green apples, ginger to taste and 💚. I blend two batches in my #vitamix with a little bit of water and squeeze the juice thru a cheesecloth to filter the fiber. This recipe makes about 32 oz. of detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, delicious and nutrient loaded! Enjoy!
When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.
