“I’ve been skiing since I was about 3. I spend as much of my free time as I can in the mountains, and if there's snow in the mountains, then I'm going to bring my skis. I worked as a ski teacher for a long time, and I've taught a lot of kids to ski. It always seemed like it made them quite happy, so it made me happy. Being in Alaska as a skier is interesting. I'm hoping to do more skiing come winter and explore the Alaska Range a bit more.”
