Where are you from, when did you begin skiing and telemarking, where do you ski most now?

I was born and raised in Lake Tahoe, CA. My parents strapped me on skis as soon as I was strong enough to stand and I haven’t been stopped since. I started tele skiing when I was 10 years old in 2006 when Alpine Meadows started the first Telemark ski team in the area. Now, I ski as much as possible when I have free time from nursing school at Alta ski area in UT.

What do you love about telemarking?

I LOVE the community. Meeting up annually at Targhee for the telemark competition and hanging out with the growing telemark family for a weekend is what I look forward to all year!

What do you like about our bindings?

I love the reliability of the bindings. I’m never scared that they’re going to malfunction or break! It’s really awesome feeling confident in my bindings on every turn so I can rip around as hard as I want. They’re stiff and controllable. I’m digging the Outlaw Xs this season with the step in and tour mode.

What do you like to do for fun when you’re not skiing?

When I’m not skiing I like to climb, hike, camp, and spend time at the lake.
