Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

skiing (duh), hiking, running, rock climbing, photographing wildflowers, working on the house. I will repeat ten times, "I love working on the house." Okay, maybe not.

What I do for a living:

Historian, editor of the Registres du Consistoire de Genève

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

Yosemite Area - Badger Pass for alpine, Glacier Point Road for skating, wherever there's snow for backcountry.

Number of days I ski in a year:

20 in a bad year, 60-80 in a good year. 30 in a row three years ago before the house building project ate my life!

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

Backcountry. Long arduous uphill followed by a long glorious downhill.

Gear I use:

Not a gear head. Alpine resort skis are Head skiercross skis and Rossignol boots. No idea what models

Backcountry AT gear is K2 somethings, Scarpa Denalis and Silvretta 500s for compatibility with ice-climbing boots.

Skate skis - Salomon Pilot boots and bindings and Fisher skis.

Back country XC setup - Rossignol BCX7 boots and I can't even remember the brand of the skis. Atomics I think

The regions where I typically ski:

Sierra Nevada of California.
