I grew up in Aspen: skiing and in love with the mountains!
I've since been in the industry for 10+ years - half that time spent recommending demo skis and boots in my local ski shop. Talking ski talk, teching and tuning those skis, and riding and experiencing the demo skis has given me a deeper knowledge of the sport! By far the biggest perk of the job was the hour and a half or so lunch break I got to go rip around getting a feel for the different way different skis ski.
I then moved into an apprentice position for Challenge Aspen, the local adaptive skiing program. This allowed me to get my bearings and take my exams to become a certified instructor! This season will be my sixth year as an instructor, spending half my time with adaptive lessons and half my time with the six and unders.
I am in love with this sport, and feel that I have knowledge and experience to help you make a confident on-snow decision. I can't wait to get you the proper gear to up your stoke levels as well!!
