Full disclosure: Rookie tester Andy Beekman, a.k.a. The Nepot, owes his spot on the team to his sister, SKI managing editor Kim Beekman. The two were raised in Denver, rode the Eskimo bus every weekend to Winter Park, and roamed the slopes of Mary Jane with no adult supervision whatsoever. The outdoors remains a passion for him. The Emory University grad is a road warrior in solar-power sales, and judging by his cards, a natural ski tester. Little-known fact: “I’ve always been a better skier than my sister.”
