A: Yes. What they make fun of us for is our slalom ability. What’s funny about that is slalom is our specialty. The hills are small so we get so many more repetitions. And the key to training in the slalom is repetition. You need as many as you can get.

 

Q: Outside of Buck Hill, what’s your favorite place to ski?

A: That’s easy — Snowmass in Colorado. I’ve been skiing there since I was 7. I like to explore. I’m a big back-country and woods skier.

 

Q: How about in Minnesota?

A: Lutsen. I like having long runs instead of getting on a chair lift every 45 seconds.

 

Q: Are there any advantages to skiing in Minnesota?

A: We usually don’t have the best conditions like they do out West. We ski in whatever we have — rain and cold and all sorts of things they don’t get. It does help a lot.

 

Q: What is one thing you cannot ski without?

A: Surprisingly, it’s the right socks. Socks play a big part in it. If they’re too thick, your feet sweat and you get colder. I prefer thinner socks so my feet stay neutral to the weather.

 

Q: Is high school skiing important to you?

A: My dad won the state high school championship when he was in school. I think it was 1985. My parents met while ski racing. It’s important.

 

Q: What do you like about high school skiing?
