Andrew got the privilege to grow up as a skier in Alta, Utah. After learning from all the knowledge given by the Little Cottonwood ski community, Andrew has competed on the Freeride World Tour for the last 5 winters. If he's not out competing, you can catch him around Alta and Snowbird coaching the next generation on the Alta/Bird Freeride team, or crushing pow with his friends.

Which of Stio's values personally align to you?

I'm stoked to work with a company that makes quality gear so I don't have to worry about it failing in the mountains.

How do you create balance in your daily life?

I'm actually really bad at balance. I tend to go 110% all the time if I'm passionate about something. If the snow is good I will ski all day, skip lunch, and ski bell to bell. But, then sometimes I'll get hurt and sleep for 2 weeks. So maybe that is the balance.

What is a bucket list activity you have yet to do or a place that you have yet to go?

I would love to go to the Himalayas.

What is your go-to workout music?

What is a piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to pursue a life of mountain sports and adventures?

Don't worry about trying to make it big. Just find a way that you can make it happen. Good things happen to those with passion, but you can't force it. Just keep chipping away. The journey is the reward.
