Skiing History:

Cory first started skiing as a two year old at Cannon Mountain in Franconia, New Hampshire. His uncle set him up on straight K2’s with 3 pin bindings and leather boots when he was seven. He bought a seasons pass to Cannon and started skiing every weekend, using both telemark and alpine skis. His Uncle happens to be a high school friend of Chris Rice (Former US Team Member and National Champion) and that was his introduction to racing. The 2007 season saw Cory’s first racing action, with a win at the Gunstock Sprint Classic. In the 2008 He attended nationals in Tamarack, Idaho. He also raced in the World Cup Finals in Sugarbush, VT, earning him a nomination to the US Development Team. The rest as they say is history!


Goals and Motivation:
 
The pursuit of the perfect telemark turn. During my time on the US Telemark Ski Team, I can honestly say that I have only made a handfull. The feeling of a perfect, or more often really nice, telemark turn is unparalleled (pun most certainly intended). It is the relentless pursuit of that feeling that keeps me going. That and who doesn’t want to be the best telemark skier in the world?
 

Why do I Telemark Race?
I race because telemark is skiing in its most full and pure form. It is the ultimate ski race. From the sheer rush of laying deep arcs through gates, hucking your meat off the jump, then hauling you-know-what into the 360, and the skating as hard as possible to the finish, telemark is sport unlike any other.

Interesting Facts About Myself:

An avid outdoors-man, I enjoy hiking and mountain biking. Although the White Mountains are where I earned my chops, these days I can be found frolicking through the Austrian Alps near Salzburg where I am working on my PhD. Music is also a huge part of my life, and I can always be counted on to have a little ditty in my head.
