“Some of my earliest memories of learning how to ski are from when I was about 2 years old. My parents put me in a harness with a ski leash and a pacifier pinned to a ribbon on my jacket. I always sang to myself the whole way down to keep my nerves at bay and then we'd eat Sour Patch Kids on the chairlift. Eventually my parents took me off the leash and my dad would plop me at the top of a black diamond and let me figure out my own way down.”
