Pete grew up at small-but-mighty Brantling Ski Slopes in Western New York, catching uphill rides from rope tows and t-bars from a wee age. He quickly graduated to Whiteface and the highest levels of regional and collegiate ski racing. Raised on an apple farm, Pete is passionate about the outdoors and the environment.

After Williams he pursued a career in renewable energy, where he spends most of his time when not at the Parlor or out on the slopes.
