MY BIO

How I Got Started

I was 2 or 3 years old when my folks strapped on my first pair of red plastic skis ... from there I picked up the notion of walking (yes, skiing preceded walking). My folks were some of the very first ski instructors at the now closed Stagecoach ski area near Steamboat. Why did I stick with skiing, what was the draw? At first, mostly to spend quality time with my folks (especially when a cozy mountain cabin was available) and later good friends. After endless weekends with the Buffalo Ski Club, I skied competitively with the Winter Park Freestyle Ski Team and after that, the Pro Mogul tour. 

When the inevitable happened and that knee blew out, upon recovery, I took a spin on some Telemark skis and really began to explore the mountains outside the areas on my own, with family and friends and in programs like Colorado Mountain College’s Outdoor Semester in the Rockies in 1990 and while getting my Wilderness First Responder (WFR) in 1993. Still a current WFR after 25 years, I have also added many avalanche education certification courses with AIARE, CMS, Irwin Guides, Silverton Avalanche School and NOLS and in the process gained a host of solid backcountry partners, many of which now guide with me at a Professional Level. 

 

I still ski and coach and instruct in bounds, but that was all mostly for the kids. My heart has always been outside the boundaries. I want to give the kids as many opportunities for getting after it as I did and I am 100% focused on getting out there in the backcountry and being safe for both them and myself ... and now you. When my kids ask me “Why do we have to go skiing again today, Dad?” my reply is “Why not go skiing? So you can play video games? Trust me, after you feel the snow move below your skis and boots, you will want to do this way more than play games. The only reason we won't go ski something, kids, is because it isn't safe."

 

"[Happiness] is to be found in the vibrant dynamism of your own life as you struggle to challenge and overcome one obstacle after another, as you clamber up a perilous ridge in pursuit of that which lies beyond.”
