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.

2007 Freeskiing World and most winning freeskier of all time.

Coach John Wooden

Any final thoughts?
