Christian first worked at Jans as a ski technician tuning skis at night after skiing all day. Turns out his primary motivation was so he could get an employee discount on a new fork for his mountain bike. That’s devotion to two sports for you.
“There are two things you should know about Christian. First, he once showed up for a photo-shoot with a pair of Volkl Mantras (at 94mm under foot, considered by most sane people to be powder skis) and the photographer said, ‘You’re being a bit optimistic aren’t you?’ since it hadn’t snowed in a week and the skies were bright blue. Christian’s response was, ‘These ARE my carving skis.’ And, he laid them over on the first turn of the shoot and made a believer out of everyone there as his hip arced about six inches off the snow for turn after turn. Second, he’s an extraordinarily devoted single dad.”
