Other Racing and Ski Industry Experience:
When I moved to Utah in July of 2011, my colleagues said to me, “You’re going to have to learn to ski.” I bought an unlimited ski pass to Sundance Ski Resort that October—never having been on skis in my life. My first Alpine ski lesson that December consisted of a friend taking me to the top of the mountain and giving me the line from Better Off Dead: “You go down. If something gets in your way, turn.” I’ve since picked up skate skiing and tele, racing my first amateur tele race on my fifth day in tele gear: I crashed, but in hearing the cheers from the other tele racers, I managed to hike around the gate, which I broke with my shin, and finished the race.
