Meet the PSIA-AASI Team…

psiaaasi_nationalteam_chrisrogers_headshot-4208PSIA-AASI is running an interview series called “Meet the Team.” Each segment features one team member, so you can learn a bit more about us.

Can you tell the members a little bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where long winters make for a natural introduction to snowsports. My parents say I learned to ski before learning to walk. After graduating from high school, two buddies and I bought an RV and spent three months riding at more than 30 ski areas in Canada, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, and Colorado. That trip launched me into a career in snowsports, first in journalism, then in snowboard education. I live in EagleVail, and manage ski and snowboard school training at Vail Mountain.
