Name a person who inspires you to be a better skier?

My brother, Jack - we're always encouraging each other to try harder and go bigger!

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Start a heli ski operation and buy a ranch!

Breakfast of champions?

Biscuits and gravy.

Favorite chairlift and why?

Headwaters Double (at Big Sky). Many of my best days have been had off that old chair!

The most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this year? (books, podcasts, TV shows)

Michelle Parker's interview in The Adventure Stash. Also, if you're looking for a just for fun book I couldn't put Where the Crawdads Sing down. 

Ideal down day?

A wood fire, good book, and snuggles from my border collies.

Highlight memory from filming with WME for this year's film?

Standing on top of the Big Couloir watching the 4 legends (Scot SchmidtTom Day, John and Dan Egan) rip it up together. I couldn't stop smiling!

Gear you are loving right now, on or off the ski slopes, and why?

My Hestra Ergo Grip gloves! These close fitting, lightweight leather gloves have been the best for snowmobiling.

 
What is a cause you care about that you'd love to share with the Warren Miller audience?

Tsering's Fund. Their mission is to provide help to the underprivileged in Nepal through private donations. They find deserving children, young women and families in Nepal and help change their lives through educational scholarships, medical care and basic living assistance.

What is your vision for the future of skiing?

More girls!
