Telemark skiing is the oldest form of sliding on the snow, but Ty has taken this historic form of skiing to the future. Freeheel skiing for the past 20 years, he has pushed the sport in a direction that appeals to everyone.
Ty has brought his freestyle background to the backcountry in recent years, filming and capturing progressive images that are pushing the boundaries of what is possible on telemark skis. Ty enjoys the amazing beauty of his hometown to the fullest, all seasons of the year.
He graduated from Sierra Nevada College with a degree in Sustainable Studies, and currently works for the Forest Service building and maintaining trail systems, along with environmental restoration projects that help to preserve the clarity of Lake Tahoe.
