About the Author

Helping visitors have extraordinary skiing experiences at my home resort Whistler Blackcomb has become my winter passion, and the book How I Ski an up-to-date summary of the techniques I use when skiing and teaching skiing. Are my techniques and descriptions of those techniques effective? Happily, feedback from beginners through expert skiers indicates this is indeed the case. As a skier I am always looking for how to ski as simply yet as efficiently and effectively as possible. Perhaps it is my engineering background that drives me to understand the physics at play, and then how I can minimize the work I need to do yet still have all the fun I want on the mountain. And as a writer I am always looking for the best phrases and images to transfer understanding in the briefest and simplest terms. My primary career (yes, I had a real job before skiing full time) required analyzing complex subjects in order to pinpoint the factors that 'really matter', then describing those factors in clear and simple terms for others to understand. I believe that skiing can be distilled to a handful of principles that when integrated deliver expert level skiing. My skiing is derived from years of free skiing, ski racing, and ski instruction at Whistler Blackcomb, where our extraordinary variety in terrain and snow conditions provides endless opportunities for developing excellent ski technique, and living lots of exciting moments applying it! My skiing receives positive compliments from top level coaches and instructors alike, which prompted me to write a first edition of 'How I Ski' in 2009. The positive response to the book's initial and subsequent versions keeps me motivated to continue refining my skiing and teaching skills, and sharing the related knowledge as clearly as I can to the benefit of all keen learners of the sport.
