Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Skiing - resort only to date, but would love to give back country a try.

Flyfishing - nothing better than hooking into a fat brown on a fluffy hex at dusk.

Mountain Biking - just jumped into the sport with the recent move to CA. Great!

What I do for a living:

Packaging Engineer - A bore, but it pays the bills

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

Over the years, SLC Little/Big has been my most frequent spot, followed by Summit Co., CO. With my recent move to the Bay, I'm still trying to figure it out. So far, it's a toss up between Kirkwood and Squaw.

Number of days I ski in a year:

Got in 12 last year, which was my career high (moving west has its advantages)
Targeting 15 this year, 20 as a stretch. Depends on the wifey.

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

Open bowls, glades, a little hike to, and some bumps, but I'm getting older and trying to maintain the knees. Try to stay off the groomers at all costs. If I had a choice on conditions: powder, powder, powder, but I dig a great spring corn day too!

Gear I use:

'10 Elan Apex with Griffons is my everyday. Very solid ski!
Picked up a pair of '10 Demo Volkl Montra's with Griffons for a fat(er) option. Can't wait to give'em a try!
Boots are Salomon Falcon 10. Been a good boot, but lots of fit adjustments over the years for my flat feet.

The regions where I typically ski:

Tahoe now, but SLC Little/Big at least once per season. Hoping to get to Mammoth at least once a season now too!
