The Snow Report
What’s been the biggest change in your life over the last few years?
Everything has just gotten a little more hectic and the traveling has picked up a ton. It’s pretty crazy how much I’m traveling now and as much as I love it, it was also nice a few seasons ago only going to a few events and then getting to lap parks and have fun with my friends.
What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far and which meant the most to you?
It’s kind of hard to say, but last year’s World Skiing Invitational was the final event of the season and pretty much the culmination of every contest up until that point. They had an AFP awards dinner the last night of the event and I was able to walk away with the overall world title, which I fought hard to win all year. But I also won the big air event at WSI and the extra points allowed me to walk away with the AFP big air world champion title as well, which was a surprise and really exciting.
What are your goals for skiing?
I’ve definitely accomplished some of the goals I’ve made for myself but there are still a lot of others that I’m working toward. I want to win X Games medals in all of the different disciplines, win an Olympic medal in Sochi, and defend my title as the AFP overall world champion for many more years to come.
What’s on tap for this winter?
I’m planning on competing a ton, doing all the major events as well as making sure that I meet the required FIS points. I will also do some of the other not so big events and try to defend my AFP title. I’m also working on a solo film project at the moment. I’m still trying to work out all of the kinks. As of now the plan is to film as much as possible this season and do every different aspect of skiing that I can, i.e. urban, backcountry, park jumps, pipe, etc.
