Tim moved to Anchorage with his family in 1981 and has since stayed for the outdoor opportunities. He knows that skiing is a life-long sport and Alaska is the place to be on skis. Tim and his family got involved in the Nordic Ski Club in the 80s, which has led to a lifelong love of skiing. Tim skied at Bartlett High School and raced in college at University of Vermont and internationally as part of the US Ski Team Development Team.
Although he spent his early years focused on racing, Tim and his family ski regularly for enjoyment including multi-day backcountry ski trips in the Brooks Range and the Kobuk 440 sled dog trail. Tim works as a computer analyst and spends his spare time commercial fishing in Bristol Bay with his family, moose hunting, and flying as a private pilot. Tim looks forward to crust skiing every year.
