Elling has a 20-year history of poor paying jobs in ski-dom, from teaching skiing in Montana to working as a snowcat skiing guide in southern Oregon. He currently keeps his creditors at bay working as a bootfitter at Mt. Bachelor in Bend, Oregon and as a freelance writer. Elling is the author of The All-Mountain Skier: The Way to Expert Skiing, 2nd ed. (McGraw-Hill).

reviews of Mark Elling
Mark, Was online wondering about pulling the trigger on a new pair of Patrons and came across your review. Glad to see you still out there rippin it up! You were the best and coolest ski instructor I ever had. In one year of "SHRED" @ the bowl, you taught me enough about skiing to go anywhere and do anything on the mountain. Thank You! You truly made a difference in my life and I'm sure many others. -Charlie Buchman Missoula, MT
