posted: 11/12/2008

SKIING: What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever learned?

Ian: To stay calm in very high stress situations.

SKIING: Where’s the best place you’ve skied?

Ian: The Tordrillo Mountain range in Alaska.

SKIING: What do you eat before you go skiing?

Ian: Usually cereal or eggs. I find that eggs give me the most energy for the day.

SKIING: What do you drink after you go skiing?

Ian: Lots of water, and after the really good days, nothing is better than a couple ice cold beers.

SKIING: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Ian: Never give up on your dreams.

SKIING: Nachos or wings, and why?

Ian: Wings cause they have protein in them and too much cheese is never a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

SKIING: Obama or McCain, and why?

Ian: Obama ‘cause McCain is old and out of touch with today's generation plus he's a war head and that's the last thing we need in this world is more war. Obama understands today's generation and I feel that he will be the best person for the big job ahead.

SKIING: Heli-skiing or skinning, and why?

Ian: Heli-skiing because flying around in a mountain range you get to pick any line you would like to ski. Then the heli can just drop you off in a spot that would be nearly impossible to get to any other way. With a Heli and the right conditions you can ski several of the best runs of your life in one day. However, skinning is much more soulful and I do love it for that.
