- Quote: “What goes around comes around.”
- How did you start skiing? Well, I grew up in Park City, Utah, so it was inevitable that I get into some sort of snow sport, and most of my family are big skiers. From the age of about 8 to 10 I competed in trampoline, and then went to the olympic park to try aerials. I saw all the crazy off-axis tricks skiers were throwing and couldn’t help myself. After that I was in the park with my friends every chance I got.
- Career Honors, Awards, and Highlights: Obviously landing the switch triple was a big highlight for me. Probably one of the bigger ones I’d say. Making finals at Dew Tour for the first time here in Utah a couple years with all my family watching is definitely up there. And of course winning the second annual War of Rails was a huge accomplishment. I have done a lot of things throughout my career that I am proud of, but I still have so much to accomplish.
