Hometown?

How did you get into Skiing?

My dad was a ski racer, so I grew up skiing as well. Got my first touring setup in college after I quit racing and haven't missed a month since.

What is your favorite shred spot?

Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State. It's pure magic up there!

Backcountry!

Backcountry is where my passion lies, but I like to dabble in the other two as well

If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

Sir Edmond Hillary, Conrad Anker, and Tenzing. They have some catching up to do.

What are your goals for this season?

Ski descent of Denali this spring and/or ski descent of the Grand Teton (we see).

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Andreas Fransson, he was an absolute animal on skis. His South Face descent of Denali, for me, stands out as one of the burliest descents in the world.

What are 3 things you like to do outside of Snowboarding?

Surfing, climbing, and scuba diving.

Who are the top 3 bands/artists you're into right now?

Flamingosis, Edwick John, and Vanilla

What sets you apart?

I have skied, climbed, fly fished, and scuba dove in the same day. (21st birthday, we also killed a keg that night).

What advice would you give kids that want to make in your sport?

Get an avalanche kit before you even think about any other backcountry gear. All the other fancy bindings and boards you can fake it until you make it, but avalanche gear (and knowledge) is a stone cold staple.

Other sponsors / supporters?

Arc'teryx
