Steve: Hates the sport baseball. Grew up learning to ski on the bump outside of Chicago called Wilmont. Despite being saddled with the technique that can only be termed the “Wilmont wiggle," he attended Burke Mountain Academy and then was a member of the U.S. Ski Team. He has spent the last 20 years pontificating about the sport of skiing either for Ski Racing Media or NBC Sports. His knowledge is encyclopedic (or is that wikopedic?) He resides in Sun Valley and talks skiing every week during the winter. Scott: Even though he has lived almost half his life in Denver, Colo., he is still an insane Boston Red Sox fan. He skied at Burke Mountain Academy, the U.S. Ski Team and Dartmouth College. He still believes his ski racing comeback is imminent. Most recently, he has been the alpine ski racing researcher for NBC Sports, and he spends a good chunk of his time arguing about the sport.
