TJ’s winters are not limited to spending time with photographers, directing and producing film projects and representing Aspen/Snowmass at home and throughout his travels. His experiences extend far past the boundaries of his home mountain, Aspen, to encompass the purest facet of the sport; climbing and skiing. TJ has climbed and skied throughout the mountains of Colorado, North and South America and he regards these experiences as paramount in his time on skis.
