Details about Jimmy Chin

Skiing Background:


I grew up skiing on a tiny hill behind my house in Minnesota. Most people don’t even think there is skiing in Minnesota. There is….barely.

The spirit of skiing:


I’ve had some of the best days in my life skiing…and some of my worst. If I didn’t have skiing in my life, I would be lost.

The most risky experience:


Attempting an alpine style ascent of the direct north face on Everest without supplemental oxygen or fixed ropes and camps.

The most painful experience:


Watching someone drop in front of me on an untracked powder run.

The ultimate day on the mountain:


It doesn’t get any better than skiing pow with your friends.

What goes throught your head before dropping a big face/ doing a trick?


Oh shit!

Reminescence about KÄSTLE:


I’ll never forget my first run on KÄSTLE skis. I skied the Cosmique in Chamonix in horrible conditions. We made friends real quickly.

Three reasons why KÄSTLE:


Beautiful skis that make beautiful turns. Do we really need a third reason?

What do you do in summer?


Mountain Bike, Run, Rock Climb, Surf

Role models/ Idols that inspire you?


I’m constantly inspired by passionate people - musicians, filmmakers, photographers, athletes, artist, craftsman, parents. There are just too many people to name.

Passions:


Skiing, Climbing, Surfing, Eating, Photography, Filmmaking. Not necessarily in that order.
