I grew up in Grand Rapids,MI and started to ski when I was in about 4th grade. My first trip down the bunny hill wasn't that successful, as I went right into the bushes at the bottom of the hill. Although, as soon as I was old enough, I worked at my local small ski hill. I sold tickets, helped with rentals, and gained my foundation of knowledge here. Then moving out west to chase a college degree, I worked as a ski tech as well as helping people find the right rental gear for them. After about 7 years of experience with skiing and the ski industry, I want to help people find the right fit for them and overall see more people succeed in finding some happiness in the powder, even if that means you end up in the bushes like me.
