What is your favorite zone or run at Stevens Pass to ride? 

To me, Hogsback is the most playful and versatile zone.

What is your favorite feature in the Stevens Terrain Park and your go-to trick for that feature? 

I love all the jumps, and when the crew sets up a mini boardercross in the middle of a jump line. I usually warm up with some backside 180s to sw backside 180s in a line.

What is your favorite memory from snowboarding or skiing? 

Wow that is a tough question. When I was really young, around 7 years old, when I was snowboarding I would pretend I was teaching a lesson and the group was following behind me. That’s a pretty funny memory I won’t ever forget.

Stick with it! And maybe invest in some butt pads.
