I always knew that skiing was a thing, but it really didn't capture me until I moved out to Oregon. There are some really striking lines on all of the Cascade volcanoes that caught my attention, so I had to go explore. I didn't learn to ski at a resort, but on a touring setup following my friends around, exhausted and gasping for air. But, I was hooked. I left Oregon and spent a season skiing in Taos, New Mexico, until eventually I went to visit a friend in Salt Lake City. I'm still in the process of leaving, but I'm not sure if that day will ever come.
I've spent the last few years skiing 50-100 days each season and working at ski shops and as a ski tech in the winter. I know the ins and outs of tuning and mounting skis and have seen tons of setups come through the shop. I know what's popular and what brands are crowd favorites. I try to ski as many different skis as I can, and learn about the construction process because that is the biggest determination of how a ski is going to ride. I'm always out on the snow, traveling through the mountains and testing new skis so that I can make the best recommendations!
Also new this season of 2023 I'm going to be ski instructing at Park City! So if you're out in Utah looking for a ski lesson or two I'd love to help out!
