Interview

Who taught you how to ski?
Growing up in Jackson Hole, Snow King Mountain was the cheapest babysitter in town. Neither of my parents ski, so I learned to ski from one of the steepest mountains in the US. Snow King has the steepest vertical drop of any mountain in the US and will always have a special place in my heart.

Do you have any notable accomplishments in skiing?
2007 Freeskiing World and most winning freeskier of all time.

Who is/are your hero(s) in life outside of skiing?
Coach John Wooden

If you weren't a professional athlete, what would be your dream job?
I think I'd like to be a ninja or heli pilot.

Any final thoughts?
Let's ski!
