I raced world cup, raced for the university of CU and then Pro! I am very fortunate to have my career still be in the ski industry. I have a contract with HBO and I am an ambassador for the sport of skiing. I guide and bring corporate groups all over the United States. I love to share my passion for the sport of skiing and encourage people to challenge themselves on the slopes and feel good about their ability and performance. I have a television show on FSN. It is a ski magazine formatted show. I do a ski tip and high light a resort around the world, I show a ski clip from one of the many hot new ski films and I have a US ski team athlete profile so we can get to know our national team and turn them into hero's for our kids. I love to ski with my kids and I love to go to their ski races! Skiing is my favorite thing to do in the world. It is sometimes hard to get things done living in Vail. Skiing is so healthy .. working out on the mountain. I am sponsored by the best ski in the world, Volkl? It helps me be the skier I am.
What is your favorite ski in Völkl Collection?
Why do you like this ski?
I can use this ski in every day. It does not matter how the conditions are.. groomed, powder, crud.. its good in everything. This is the ski that you want if you can only have 1.
What conditions do you use this ski for?
all, but think that it is best on variable conditions.. little powder, crud? and groomers. If really hard packed I would use the Fuego or the Tierra.
What other skis in the 2011/2012 collection do you ride?
I have the Kiku.
Can you tell us a little about each pair of skis, and about what sort of conditions you use them for?
They are the perfect ski for Vail Colorado's back bowls. I love this ski and it makes me feel very confident in deep powder.
What bindings do you use and where do you mount them?
What DIN do you have your bindings on?
Julia Mancuso of course for Alpine and she races on VOLKL! Jen Hudek for Big Mt.

Ingemar Stenmark.. so calm, not cocky and always won.
Ideal day in the mountains:
Powder and sunshine and no reason to be back at a certain time!
How would you describe your style?
A smooth graceful athletic skier. Love the steeps!
Your biggest breakthrough in your skiing career?
Hmmmm...Maybe going from a racer to a skier now that can ski and enjoy the whole mountain. This something that as a racer you did not think about..now I just love to ski everywhere and the more challenging the better!
