Over the seasons he has covered virtually every aspect of the sport, from the pro tours to junior racing, freestyle and World Cup alpine competition. He has written the first national stories for many U.S. team stars, and was still around to report on their retirements. “Longevity has its rewards,” he says, “but it’s a slow process.”
