Name a person who inspires you to be a better skier/rider?
In lieu of our 70th film, what’s your most memorable or favorite Warren Miller film or segment – past or present?
Silverton Segment with Andy Mahre & Pep Fujas "Children of Winter" - 2008
What would you do if you won the lottery?
I'd get a house in Revelstoke or Golden, BC. I'd also love a little spot in Baja California to surf and chill with friends and family. A jet plane and a helicopter would be nice too.
The best meal you can cook?
Pasta allaarrabiata - my mom makes it better though.
Favorite chairlift and why?
KT-22 at Squaw Valley. From the top of KT, you can access so much
The fictitious character you most identify with from a book, movie, etc. and why?
Buzz Lightyear - he's friendly, funny and still thinks he can fly.
Highlight memory from filming with WME for this year's film?
Our last day filming in Silverton, CO. Right before dropping into the biggest line of the trip, Tom Day dangled out of the helicopter thousands of feet off the ground giving me a leg kick to signal cameras were ready. It was intense, scary and super fun. He nailed the shot too by the way!
Gear you are loving right now, on or off the ski slopes, and why?
If you look good you feel (and ski) good! I love my new Spyder kit, specifically the Sanction shell jacket, and Turret GTX shell pant. Between the fit, colorways and GoTex Pro... this kit is the bomb. I also love Blizzard's Rustler ski and Tecnica's Mach1 boot. Without them, I'd be a lost cause.
What is a cause you care about that you'd love to share with the Warren Miller audience?
I love what the High Fives Foundation is doing. They give tremendous support to athletes from all sports that have sustained life-altering injuries (i.e. broken back, paralyzation, you name it). What these people can accomplish mentally and physically is so freaking inspiring.
Do you have any sponsors, if yes, who?
Spyder, Blizzard, Tecnica, POC, Swany, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Thule, Look, Yeti
