Telluride, CO

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

Sam Coffey.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I'd probably first quit my job, buy a house, and then I'd like to find a way to help increase access to skiing and the outdoors. 

Breakfast of champions?

I like muesli, but can't go wrong with a breakfast burrito.

Favorite chairlift and why?

Gold Hill in Telluride because it makes for very fast laps and a ton of vertical. It's got great fall lines and not a bad Hollywood line either.

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

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead.

Ideal down day?

Ideal down day is a slow morning with a lot of coffee, then some sort of activity to keep things moving, and time to read or work on projects.

Fictitious character you most identify with from a book, movie, etc. and why?

Rango, I always wanted to be a lizard cowboy.

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

One highlight was paddling out into the Arctic Ocean to an empty right-handed point break after a morning of powder and heli-drops.

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

On the slopes I've been loving the Head Kore 99, I love skiing pow on fat skis, but I think narrower skis are underrated and are better for most days.

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

Outdoor Afro and American Whitewater. 

How do you think the year 2020 will shape the future of skiing?

Every ski influencer will move exclusively to Tik Tok.

What is your vision for the future of skiing?

We defeat global warming, all resorts are powered renewably, and all barriers to entering and enjoying the sport fall away. And all skis go back to 200cm+ straight skis.

Favorite classic ski film and why?

Yearbook from MSP was one of my favs that I owned. Plus Wendy Fisher gave it to me.
