I love life and I try to live it to the fullest. I enjoy traveling, meeting people and seeing new cultures. It is interesting to me how they differ from the one I was brought up in. Skiing is a great way for me to express myself, relish being active, and see new places around the world. I am thankful for skiing and all that it has brought me. There is a remarkable connection to skiing and almost everything in my life. I have always skied and I love it more than ever. I cant wait to get out and rip some pow and watch my friends make sick cool things happen.
What about bindings? What bindings do you use? And where do you mount them?
I use the Jester Pro and the Duke. Mounting positions change quite a bit for all the different skis I talked about. I mount the Two 6 cm back from true center. I mount the Shiro a little further back from true center but not much. I usually mount the Mantra and Katana on the freeride line because I don't plan to ski switch on them.
What DIN do you have your bindings on?
I usually keep my DINs around 16-18. I sometimes have them a little higher on skis that I jump a lot with.
