I’ve always been a winter sports fan, and have been skating and skiing since I was 2. I love the snow, though no shade towards the other seasons! I played hockey my entire life, have raced competitively as a skier, and sledded on more hills than most. Growing up in Detroit I know the region as well which helps!
I love the cold, the snow, and the beauty winter brings to the Earth, especially Michigan! There’s nothing quite like speeding down a slope, cutting into the ice, or just enjoying the outdoors!
