Tim Lukens – Profile
My Skiing History:
Raised in Florida and Oklahoma, I currently live in Barrington, Rhode Island with my wife and kids. I grew-up skiing on yearly family ski vacations throughout the Rockies until moving to New Hampshire in the mid ‘90’s to attend Plymouth State University. I started teaching alpine and adaptive skiing at Loon Mountain after two consecutive hundred-day seasons, and became heavily involved with PSIA. I was introduced to Telemark skiing by an adaptive ski instructor in ‘99, and was hooked after spending two weeks learning the Telemark turn in leather boots and skinny skis. My first racing experience was at the 2012 Telemark National Championship in Gilford, New Hampshire. It was great to experience the competitive but supportive environment of Telemark racing, and I am excited to develop my skills and promote the sport as a member of the Development Team this year.
My Goals and Motivation:
Have fun, ski fast and love every turn like it’s my last!
