My Website

http://avycourse.blogspot.com/

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

skiing (alpine touring, alpine racing, xc skating, nordic bc), biking (rd & mtn), hiking (especially to access late-season skiing), tennis

What I do for a living:

Economics Consultant

Home Mountain (where I ski most often):

wherever the closest untracked powder is -- also on the xc ski patrols at Northfield & Greylock/Thunderbolt ... and I organize a multiple-venue rando race series: http://nerandorace.blogspot.com/

Number of days I ski in a year:

Lots...I would say too many to count, but of course I do: averaged earned vertical for turns is over half-a-million a year over the last half decade.

Terrain or conditions I like to ski the most:

snow covered!

Gear I use:

depends on the type of skiing . . . but race-style "Tech" bindings only for backcountry turning, and skis are a mix of the four leading lightweight-oriented brands: Dynafit, Hagan, La Sportiva, Trab, Movement, plus one surprisingly light Volkl

The regions where I typically ski:

New England & PNW
