Where would you like to ski that you haven’t been to before?
I would like to try skiing in the Himalayas, but I'm not sure I will have the ambition to hike that much...
Who are some of the skiers you most admire?
Chris Davenport is pretty amazing. Mike Douglas as well. Those guys are so good at entertaining.
My favorite skier to watch when I was younger was Mike Atkinson. He was so entertaining on a level about just the skiing side. Also, Tom Wallisch is of course amazing to watch.
Where is your absolute favorite spot for après-ski?
Empire Burger in Breckenridge. Sooooo good. Get the fried zuccini. Yummmm...

Eating food, mostly. And going over footage.

Playing guitar and writing. Two of my favorite things to do. I eventually want to record something fun!
