Youngbloods: Steve 'Speedy' Day

Features
posted: 02/07/2002

"You have to stay out on the edge, because if you don't use it, you lose it." At 36, Speedy isn't in danger of losing it anytime soon. A lifelong Sierra skier¿he grew up skiing Boreal, the tiny Donner Summit area that produced world-champion speed skier Jeff Hamilton¿Speedy's found continual renewal by pushing his limits every day. "I'm still learning," he says. "This year I just skied the Box Chute for the first time." The Box Chute, by the way, is best described as a vertical wall. Though Speedy credits Squaw's endlessly challenging terrain for giving him room to grow, he's been on the Skiing 100 list twice now, and he'd be a standout skier on any mountain. "I'm into helicopters and ski grabs," he says, "but I gave up inverts when I was 22." Smart, too.
