Ski Club: Winter Wildlands Alliance
Forrest started Nordic skiing as a teenager in the Northeast where cross-county skis provided him the inexpensive freedom to explore the northern Appalachia in the winter. After high-school Forrest moved west where he has spent over twenty-five years pioneering long technical ski traverses, steep descents, and backcountry powder turns. His love of skiing and exploration has lead to some of the most remote ski terrain in the world including the snow covered hinterlands of Mongolia, Antarctica, Patagonia and Alaska.
