My Website

http://www.epicski.com/tag/jim-kenney/articles http://www.dcski.com/columnists/8

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 and other websites/publications.

What I do for a living:

Retired Navy civilian, now part time Defense Contractor.

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

Mid-Atlantic US (single resort I have skied most lifetime is Blue Knob, PA, also first place in 1967).
Personal trivia - I've skied at ~60 different ski areas since January 2008, mostly in the US East, two in Quebec, eight in Utah, two in New Mexico, one in Oregon, one in Wyoming, seven in California, and ten in Colorado. I have visited close to 90 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:-)
2015&16 were good years, averaging close to 40 days each, mostly in Colorado, Utah, and mid-Atlantic.

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

Powder: you can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find you get what you need.

Gear I use:

Nordica Vagabond, 177cms/107mm
Nordica Nrgy 80, 177 cms/80mm
Volant V2 CHUBB, 175 cms/94mm
Lange Blaster 90 boots

The regions where I typically ski:

Mostly mid-Atlantic, but increasingly US West, some New England, rarely Europe but love it.
