      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I’m originally a nordic skier from Minnesota but moved to Squamish British Columbia about 15 years ago and haven’t looked back since. When I arrived here, I realized that there was no need to stay on the hamster wheel of groomed XC ski trails and so began my foray into ski touring and ski mountaineering!

      Your favorite mountains?

      Hard to beat the Coast Mountains. They’re as rugged as it gets, with glaciers and granite all within sight of the ocean. Access is hard but the reward is high as well. Of course the Alps, Tatras, and the Himalaya are amazing but my home range is hard to beat…

      Your home ski area?

      I suppose technically Whistler-Blackcomb but even closer is the ski touring zone above the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish. It’s rad to be able to drive less than 10min to be putting my boots on and then skinning up to amazing ski mountaineering terrain.

      What was your first experience with skis?

      XC skiing as a kid with my dad. I remember him taking me out on the golf course on what was surely the coldest, windiest day of the decade. I hated it. Luckily a cool older friend of mine was into skiing and it turned out my dad was right!

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      I suppose I live a fairly one-track life. In the summer I love rock and alpine climbing and do a bit of ice climbing in the winter but mostly just as a reminder that skiing is better. I’m enjoying more and more working on my house and tinkering with renovations!

      Why Majesty?

      For a long time, I tried to ski on the absolute lightest equipment I could for any given day. That’s great to be light and fast but it gets tricky sometimes when you find yourself undergunned. More recently, I’ve tried to find the equipment that skis the best and is the highest performing (albeit a bit heavier) for any given day. Fun and functional rather than fast and light so to speak. I find Majesty skis hit this balance perfectly. They’re not the lightest racing skis but they are light considering how well they perform. I want the best equipment and I’m lucky to have found it with Majesty!

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      2022/23 will be my second full season using Majesty skis.

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      Last year my Majesty Superwolf skis accompanied me on several first descents of ski lines around BC. They also joined me on a trip through the Himalayan mountains in Northern India. Pretty successful first season overall!

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      I’ll be continuing to seek out first descents in Canada this season with a focus on my home mountains. I’m also looking forward to a spring expedition to the Waddington Range in Northern BC. We’ll see what the year brings! I’m also excited to get connected with the designers in Poland and would love to get to visit the team and do some more skiing in the Tatra Mountains!
