ANTHONY GILL
Nickname: Tele-Tony, El-Guapo
Hometown: Deerfield, IL
Home Mountain: Park City
Date of Birth: December 3rd 1984

Random pieces of info from Tony you should be interested in:
I started skiing as a youngster, but never freed the heel until I moved out West six years ago. I live in Park City, Utah with a fine lady and a couple mangy mutts. I ski as much as possible because it's simply the most fun a person can have without getting arrested in Mexico.

A couple years ago I started to realize I was getting old, so now I'm the editor-in-chief at Telemark Skier among other odd jobs I do to help pay the bills. I very intently watch the Chicago sports teams and lament their inevitable failures, so getting outside and jumping on skis and my mountain bike is the best way to relieve the stress.

I have been telemarking for 8 years and jumping and competing since the beginning. I have been fortunate enough that telemark skiing has allowed me to travel around the world competing and shooting.  I try to push freeride telemark to new levels and inspire others to try it themselves.

Date of Birth: December 18th 1992

Random pieces of info from Jeremy you should be interested in:
I am 20 years old and grew up in beautiful CO. I started to ski when I was a young lad at the age of 2, then switched over to telemarking when I was 11. I started to dabble in park skiing about 4 or 5 years ago. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, hunting, shootin dice at the skunk den, and freestyle walking. I recently moved out to Salt Lake to focus on skiing and filming with the Fairly Casual crew. I don't have to many goals for this season except to ski. I like to live my life day to day its easier to plan that way.

Born in Grand Junction, CO in 1986, moved to Summit County at the age of 1. Skied for the Team Breck race program until we moved back to the western slope in 1996. Skied and snowboarded Powderhorn Resort until 2001, when I discovered telemark skiing. I now work as little as possible to survive, so I can telemark often in the winter, and longboard often in the summer. Fun is fun.

Random pieces of info from Christopher you should be interested in:
With the home mountains of Vail and Beaver Creek, Christopher definitely doesn't lack the terrain to enjoy lifting his heel and enjoying deep snow. He's been in the Vail Valley for about seven years working many seasonal jobs, but currently makes his wages as an EMT at Vail Valley Medical Center.  His freeheel resume doesn't lack substance either, by filming with Lipstick Films and Freeheellife, shooting for Telemark Skier Magazine and Vail Resorts, and winning the Inaugural Winter Mountain Games Tele Big Air, Christopher is working on becoming one of the next up and coming stars.

Bennett Drummond
Hometown: Truckee, CA
Home Mountain: Alpine Meadows
Date of Birth: July 2nd 1998

Random pieces of info from Bennett you should be interested in:
Skiing is in my blood (and I'm glad, because I was born and live in Tahoe). Both my parents are avid telemark skiers. I've been skiing since I was 19 months old, and I remember asking them when I could learn how to telemark. My dad said I had to be a proficient alpine skier first. I got my first tele set-up when I was 10yrs old and joined the junior freeheel team at Alpine Meadows. After my first day of telemark skiing I was hooked. I loved the freedom of the turn - especially in powder. Once I learned how to ski powder, I never wanted to go back to alpine skiing, and I have been a member of the Alpine Meadows Telemark Team ever since. They are family to me. Every day at team, a few of us strive to become better .. big mountain, park, all mountain .. skiers! I have become especially fond of 'catching air'. To me, its the closest thing to flying. When I can't get access to the cliffs, I like hitting jumps in the terrain park. With the help of local coaches (you know who you are) I have expanded my trick inventory. I look forward to skiing as much as possible, and hope to do better this year. Aside from family, friends, pets, school, baseball, surfing, fishing, guitar, myth busting & world war II history, SKIING is my LIFE!
