How did you like living in Summit County this year? What was your take on the scenes at Key and Breck?
I enjoyed my season living in summit, with that being said I definitely wouldn’t do it again. There’s definitely a lot of good things about summit county, like the abundance of fast food and outlet malls. No I jest, I mean summit is home to some of the best parks in the world so you can definitely learn a lot and really improve your park skiing there, and another really sick thing is so many people pass through there at one point or another during the year so you get to meet a bunch of people. On the flip side its kind of known as the training center, that vibe weirds alot of people out but I didn’t find it to be that big of a deal, just cause some people were training super hard, it didn’t effect my ability to go out and ski how I wanted to ski and have a good time. Overall though one year was enough, even if I weren’t going to school next year I wouldn’t live in CO.
How did you end up on Nordica and what is that deal with that team? Everyone has noticed how many good ams they’ve thrown on the team. What do you say to the kids who say ‘it’s still Nordica?’
I got on Nordica in the beginning of the season, I was looking for a new ski sponsor and Luke Hagearty had just got on Nordica in the summer and was adamant that I at least get in contact with Evan Williams. So I gave Evan a call, and he got pumped on the idea of me skiing for Nordica, and I was stoked on everything he had to say about where Nordica is going, so I got on Nordica. As to the people saying “it’s still Nordica,” I don’t think it really warrants a response, haters gonna hate.
