Steamboat Springs, CO -

Q. What’s on your warm-up playlist?
A. Anything that makes me want to sing, dance or get fired up. It could be anything from Ke$ha to country. It really just depends on the day.

Q. What is the worst skiing accident you’ve ever been in?
A. I have had two season-ending knee injuries, but neither of the crashes were very crazy. So I have to say, my favorite crazy crash was when I was about four; I hit a deep patch of snow and double ejected out of both my boots and skis, it’s one of my first skiing memories.

Q. Where is the coldest place you’ve ever skied?
A. Lake Louise in Canada.

Q. How do you train during the summer? 
A. When I am not chasing the snow around the world, I spend time in between Steamboat and Park City. I love riding my mountain bike, hiking, running and playing games, but I also spend a lot of time at the gym.

Q. What’s the craziest dream you’ve ever had?
A. I do not remember my dreams very often but when I do, I usually wake up slightly concerned for my own mental health.

Q. What’s your favorite concert venue?
A. Telluride Bluegrass.

 Q. What would you do if you won the lottery?
A. I would give half of the money to my parents for retirement (It’s the least I could do to pay off my endless ski racing debt.), and I would set the rest aside so I could ski and travel for the rest of my life.

Q. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A. This is the million-dollar question. I will be skiing. That’s the only thing I can guarantee.

Q. What is your favorite memory made in Steamboat?
A. Camping with the Lowell Whiteman School on Buffalo Pass in September and waking up to two feet of snow on the tent. Cannot think of a better ‘we will laugh about this later’ memory.

Q. Whose autograph would you like to get in Sochi?
A. Hockey players. Any of them!

Q. Which chairlift in Steamboat do you think has the best views?
A. Morningside. There is a 360-degree view of the whole Yampa Valley from the Flat Tops to Sleeping Giant.  

Q. Who is the most important person in your life?
A. My brother, Max.
