Do you enjoy skiing in contests
How could contests be improved
In many ways
What do you think of ski movies
I like watching them all, which allows me to see what's happening in our sport. And I obviously really enjoy how EP puts together Nimbus edits. That's a big reason why we started a production company...
Do you enjoy shooting video parts
Yes. Very much. It's a way to express my creativity
Do you ski in the rain
Depends. I definitely have, and will, but I don't go out looking for it.
What do you like about Atomic
There are a lot of positives... The skis, the team, the Employees, their faith in me, their goals as a brand, their passion. They are just a rad brand who truly live for skiing and the surrounding culture.
How did you get in Atomic
Jordan, the Marketing manager at the time came to me with some great ideas of restructuring the brand. Both he and Atomic showed a lot of faith in my skiing and approach, so we collaborated, created the Bent Chetler and kept things rolling to where we are today.
Who do you ski with now
Try to ski with a lot of different people. All of my friends and team mates, but mostly Eric Pollard. Ride with a lot of boarders too
What have been the highlights of your skiing career
Making my passion for skiing a lifestyle and career.
Is there anything in skiing you haven't done that you'd like to accomplish
A lot. There is a million things I still hope to accomplish, from tricks, to lines,to ski technology, all the way down to how I make a turn…
What do you do besides skiing
Surf, climb, bike, yoga, art, photography, eat, sleep...try to enjoy my life to the fullest.
What music art books have you been enjoying lately
Been listening to some rad old 50's and 60's jams lately. Always intrigued by art through out my travels. I tend to listen to books on tape. Haven't had much time to read. Half way through Keith Richard's documentary. Just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain.
What are your future goals
To stay healthy, be a good person, and keep on the path I'm on now.
