I haven't heard of this lad but he's tearing it up at Swiss pro. What is his back story? (Also kudos to him for the awesome crash!)

    A young dude that runs -39 every time I see him ski, seems to be very consistent.

    Nice kid, Ohio native I believe. Saw him kill a bunch of 39s at skiwatch a few years back...CP n Regina were there too some serious skiing went down.

    If I understand correctly, he grew up practicing on Perfect Pass and winning on Zero Off.

    He's been on the scene for a while. He's got the right stuff for sure. One of the most stylistic skiers I've ever seen ski. Back in 2015 I was at Bennett's with a buddy and he just happened to swing by for a set. Amazing to watch from the boat. I still watch the video of that set all the time. He had just won the Collegiate Nationals that year.

    He was the Pro in our 3 person ProAm team last year at Travers GrandPrix. Also saw him at Lake 38 every time I was up there. His ski style is second to none considering his scores and that he's rather short compaired to the current crop of pro men's skiers. I have a feeling his talents go beyond skiing. I don't think he missed a single clay during the skeet shoot at Travers.

    Dane is one of the best guys in the sport. Could very easily be a top pro if he decided not to pursue a business career but his talents go beyond skiing.

    2015 +/- collegiate slalom champ. If you get “The Water Skier,” he was on the cover the issue after his win (as I recall).
