Biography

blue underline

As a kid, my Mom would drop me off at our local 300 vertical foot "mountain" in Dubuque, IA, and I wouldn't stop skiing until I had frost bite on my cheeks and it was closing time. I was in love. I raced throughout childhood, often driving 8 hours one way to races on weekends. I left college for Colorado, and never looked back. I've learned to work hard in the summer in order to live and ski hard in the winter. Being a professional skier has given me opportunities to travel across the world, to make best friends, and to make a life doing what I love. I'm proud to ski for and work with companies like SCARPA, and I hope to ski well into old age.


Q & A

  1. How did you get involved with your respective sport?: When I moved to Colorado, I was awed by the expanse of the mountains and realized there was a lot more than the race hill.

  2. Who were your influences early in life?: My brother Eric, a skier and endurance competitor. Scot Schmidt, pioneer of extreme skiing.
  3. What draws you to the outdoors?: Feeling primal. Putting myself in situations where instinct prevails.

  5. Why do you trust SCARPA products?: SCARPA makes very specific gear for very specific arenas. It's specialized for comfort and technical needs.
  6. What gets you out of bed on big days?: Every ski day is a big day to me. It's an opportunity to learn and grow from varying conditions and experiences.

  9. If you had a baseball walkup song, what would it be?: Ricky Scaggs, Pig in a Pen
