I have long felt more comfortable with skis on my feet than without. My parents fell for skiing as West Texas teenagers in the 1950s; thank goodness they managed to relocate appropriately and pass that love on to the rest of the family. I grew up skiing in Colorado; Copper's inaugural season was also mine, when I was 4. Since then I've had 40 years of skiing under my belt! Colorado will always be home, but now I love to travel. Jackson, Taos, Crested Butte, Alta and Snowbird are my most frequent destinations, but I hope for return trips to Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows, Whistler, and the Alps among many others. I have heliskied in Iceland, and taken trips to Zermatt, Lech, and Kitzbuhel as well.
