Shane McConkey, Tamara McKinney, and all my friends I used to race with in squaw who are living their dreams and ripping, like Cody Townsend and Michelle Parker!!

What is the worst skiing injury you have ever had?
I crashed a long time ago, and had hip surgery in 2006 from some chronic pain…it still bothers me, so i am guessing it was that crash. It was Super G, and i was coming around the last corner when I hit a bump going about 50mph, I did sort of the splits and all my gear came off!
What is something you wish you had more time for outside of skiing?
I wish I had more time for freeskiing! I love it. That trip to Iceland was one of the best trips of my life!
