My Website


Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Big into family skiing. Wife and I have brought four skiers into this world.
I enjoy writing about recreational skiing for www.dcski.com and www.epicski.com.

What I do for a living:

Gov, but considering retirement.

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

Mid-Atlantic US.
Personal trivia - I've skied at ~55 different ski areas since January 2008, mostly in the US East, two in Quebec, six in Utah, two in New Mexico, one in Oregon, six in California, and nine in Colorado. I have visited about 85 different ski areas lifetime.

Number of days I ski in a year:

More please?
What I lack in frequency, I make up with in persistence. I've been fortunate enough to ski every winter since 1967:-)

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

Powder, but what I like and what I get are two different things.

Gear I use:

Nordica Vagabond 177cms/107mm
Nordica Burner Evo 170 cms
Fischer RX8, 175 cms
Volant V2 CHUBB, 175 cms
Lange Blaster 90 boots

The regions where I typically ski:

Mostly mid-Atlantic, some New England, some US West, rarely Europe
