I've heard from others that have skied with him that Nick is good.
I've spent the last few days enjoying zoomin around and exploring Alta's terrain with my long time ski bud David Evrard (co-author of "The Athletic Skier") and report that the snow is great and it is looking good for the ESA.
It is inspiring to watch someone like David who, having years ago moved to Florida, now only skis one week a season yet is able to tap into his vast experience in the sport and still ski at a level most anyone would aspire to. He romps around the mountain playing like a kid and enjoying the experience as much as ever.
These skiers with a true life long passion for the sport are always fun to be around and spend time on the mountain with.
