Weight: 140 lb
Years skiing: 40+
Days per year: 80ish, 90% in resort
Home mountains: Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin
Preferred terrain: Most anything as long as it's soft: powder, steep chalky technical stuff with lots of rocks to ski around, fresh corduroy on an empty run.
Skiing style: Whatever works for the ski+terrain.
Preferred ski characteristics: Not too short, not too soft, not too stiff. But I think I tend to adapt my skiing to whatever I'm on at the moment. Right now I'm loving my 173 Kästle MX83, 174 Renoun Z-90, 180 Fischer Motive 95ti, and 181 Völkl 100Eight.
Boots: Tecnica R9.8 110, with ZipFit Gara liners and Booster straps; Lange XT110 Freetour LV with Boot Doc foam liners for inbounds/stock liners for outtabounds.
About me: I have long felt more comfortable with skis on my feet than without. My parents fell for skiing as West Texas teenagers in the 1950s; thank goodness they managed to relocate appropriately and pass that love on to the rest of the family. I grew up skiing in Colorado; Copper's inaugural season was also mine, when I was 4. After college, I moved away and skied infrequently, but returned in 2000 and have skied more days each year since then.
Skiing changed for me when I first went out of state, to Jackson Hole in 2004. CO will always be home, but now I love to travel. Jackson and Altabird are my most frequent destinations, but I hope for return trips to Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Whistler, the Alps, and first visits to Montana and Vermont, among many others.
