Backround in skiing: I started skiing when i was four years old and by the time i was ten i new i wanted to freeride.I had the choice to freeride from a young age.I tried freestyle and a bit of racing but freeriding was evolving so much already by then and thats all i wanted to do.Having some elders and friends to help me along was key and learned a lot from skiing around my local mountains at whistler.I was slowing progressing everything into the backcountry and now im still progressing and putting my all around skiing techniques together in the mountains.
