Why did you start skiing? I grew up in Montana where there was nothing else to do. So, everybody in my town would go up to the hill every weekend. My mom would bring me up there when I was three.
In 5 or 10 years where would you like to see the discipline of freeskiing, or whatever you want to call it, progressive freestyle? I just want to see it around. See it still happening. I kind of want it to go in a different direction, more of a snowboarding direction almost. Where it's a lot more technical stuff. Every trick out there is pretty much technical but snowboarders are taking it to a new level where each rider will put their own different little style into it. Not do the toughest tricks but make the easy, more-technical tricks really nice, which is kind of hard to do.
What would you like to see more of in the ski industry? I would like to see more hype on skiing. I think skiing could be made a lot cooler than it is. Just because of the roller blading aspect a lot of people think it's just like roller blading, but it's the furthest thing from it.
I see you around now and then and know you just moved up to Tahoe, but who are you hanging out with most of the time? Evan and CR. Shane lives at my house so I see Shane a lot.
What about your free time? I do a little skateboarding. I don't know, just chillin', listening to music.
Do you have any big plans? My biggest plan is to do a switch 540 off a big cliff. That's about as far as my plans go for right now.
