What do you enjoy doing to give your body a break? (Recovery routine, healing tips, etc.) Yoga is great for cross training and recovery.

Can you tell us about some of the gear you were using in your segment with WME? My K2 Remedy 112s were the perfect ski for Alaska terrain. They were stable at high speeds yet nimble when I needed to make quick moves. Also, Voke Tabs were a great source of immediate energy for those 'get up and go' moments.

Other than professional athlete, what is your dream job? Does professional golfer count? My dream job would be to play on the LPGA.

Most memorable moment filming with WME this year? (good or bad) Dancing on top of #RVFantasy, with Amie Engerbretson and Lexi DuPont, dressed as bunnies while getting buzzed by helicopters. The Tsaina Lodge is a rowdy place.

Your idea of a perfect vacation sans skiing? Trekking through remote wilderness and high peaks with my brother and sister is something that I have always wanted to do.

Mantra to live by? Learn. Create. Discover. Inspire. Teach.

Tunes to ski to? I love listening to the sound of the snow under my skis.
