For the last 2 seasons, he has focused his efforts on the Winter Dew Tour. Ty scored the cover shot of this year's Powder Magazine Buyer's Guide.

What is your favorite ski in 2012/2013 Collection?
Shiro


Why do you like this ski?
All around shredding ski whether it’s 2” or 2’ of freshies.


What conditions do you use this ski for?
Powder


What other skis in the 2011/2012 collection do you ride?
Ledge, Wall


Can you tell us a little about each pair of skis, and about what sort of conditions you use them for?
I love Ledge for halfpipe skiing, very smooth and it stays on edge all the way up the pipe wall. I prefer the Wall while skiing park; it’s a super strong ski that won’t fall apart after a season’s worth of hitting rails. And makes for solid landings.


What bindings do you use and where do you mount them?
The Marker Jester pro is my binding of choice. Very light and never releases unless it’s supposed to. My park skis are always center mounted, (including Chopsticks) Shiros are mounted slightly forward of traditional mounting location.


What DIN do you have your bindings on?
12 Din.
