Hailing from Chicago, Illinois. In 2003 I picked up my first rental Rossignol from Alpine Valley resort in Elkhorn, Wisconsin (proceeded to snap it in half racking on a tree) I was hooked.
After 6 years stuck in the Midwest "ice sheets". I got my first taste of Rocky Mountain powder. From that moment it was assured that I would abandon the plains for the heart of Colorado.
This life is short and we're not getting younger. Let's get out there and explore those nearly unattainable back bowls and chutes suited only for the bold and the avalanches that follow.
