I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that it might incriminate me.
Started skiing in 1969 at age 2 and a half. Raced until about 1983, but preferred skiing powder, building jumps and hucking cliffs. I am now the Head Freeride Coach for the Vail Development Team. A day on the hill with my guys never feels like a day of work. I am trying to evolve in the sport. Progression doesn't happen as fast past the age of 40 but it still happens. My goal is simply to keep learning and try something new every time I am up on the hill. Last week was a double tip tap 180. Goal for the season is to stick a corked 7 and a rodeo. Video will be posted.
I suck and every once in awhile I get lucky and get a great shot. It's kind of like golf that way. Most of the time it's completely frustrating and you just want to quit and then you hit that miracle shot. Then you're hooked again.
I am trying to get better; watching videos to see how the pros do it. I have to say that Turbo is about my favorite ski movie. They were able to make every shot look like it could be a promo poster.
Building insane shit in my back yard.
Pretty diverse and eclectic.
Love CSI and NCIS. Wipeout is one of the best shows ever. Every time I see some fool get taken out by something on that show an launched uncontrollably in the air; I always think, that would be so sick if they had skis on. Also love watching monster quest and river monsters, so the History Channel and the Discovery Channel. Myth Busters is still pretty awesome. Basically, I am a geek.
Shibumi by Trevanian - Still think it's the best book ever written. Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I have probably read the trilogy 8 times. Clancy Books. Stormy Weather by Hiassen - it's a lol riot.
