Story
A long time ago on a snowy field in the farmlands of Norway, I dawned my grandfathers wooden skis. A passion for snow country was born. In 1998 I relocated to the Sierras where I was first introduced to snowshoeing. Once I put my first pair on, I never looked back. Today, I believe snowshoe running to be the strength in all the running I do. I would be less of an athlete without it.
