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