What makes you unique as a skier/athlete?
I almost always recover in a run where I almost fall.

What made you switch to Zipline and/or Shaman?
I saw some National team members at a Noram in Killington where I was competing, and some of them had Zipline poles. I thought they looked nice and light, so I tried them and fell in love!
