“Mountains mean for me the way of my life. In the winter it is all about skiing and in the summer hiking or mountain biking. When I was two years old I skied for first time in a parking lot. When I was three, I skied the hill above. When I was five I skied the peak on top of the mountain. I like the way you can push your limits in the mountains. My grandfather always said “I was born in the mountains. I live in the mountains. And I will die in the mountains”
A Q&A With Ted Ligety
What's the perfect day of shredding to you?
Blue sky and hard snow ripping around on GS skis is the best. There is no other feeling like really laying over a turn and feeling the interaction between the skis and the snow.
