What do you love about skiing?

I love being in remote places surrounded by inspiring terrain. Steep technical turns, playful wind lips, and smooth rollers are my bread and butter. The backcountry is my venue of choice. As a self proclaimed flow technician, my favorite part about skiing is connecting turns in a creative way. It's like smooth jazz on skis.

Why 4FRNT?

I love 4FRNT skis because they are one of the only companies that offer an excellent variety of wide reverse cambered skis that excel in all types of conditions, but particularly in soft snow. Their ski designs allow for playful turns in everything from deep powder, to cascade concrete, to spring corn. Additionally, as a Tahoe raised skiers and former Vermont dweller, i appreciate the brand bi-coastal roots. Lastly, the approachable price point of 4FRNT skis as well as their D2C sales model makes the skis more accessible to shredders of all demographics.
