Featured Athlete: AJ Oliver 

Name a person who inspires you to be a better skier? 

Franz Klammer, let ‘er buck.


In lieu of our 70th film, what’s your most memorable or favorite Warren Miller film or segment – past or present?

I always remember the segment from Vertical Reality shot in India. Neon one-piece suits, riding elephants, locals skiing on handmade skis…. It's got it all.


What would you do if you won the lottery?

Buy a “mom and pap” ski resort and let everyone ski for free.


Best meal you can cook? 

Simple. Chicken, sautéd veggies, with maybe pasta or couscous.


Favorite chairlift and why?

Challenger, at Big Sky. You are able to choose from multiple aspects and exposure. Something is always skiing well. Also, it’s great for turning laps. The 9min ride is perfect to catch your breath before you do it again.


The most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this year? (books, podcasts, TV shows)

I’ll go with the most recent. The Fall Line by Nathaniel Vinton.


A fictitious character you most identify with from a book, movie, etc. and why?

Anyone of the little rascals… I’m always looking for a way out of trouble.


Highlight memory from filming with WME for this year's film?

Skiing in the Monashees, exploring new terrain, and of course skiing with industry legend Glen Plake.


Gear you are loving right now, on or off the ski slopes, and why? 

Camera, I’m getting back into photography. New Year's resolution!


What is a cause you care about that you'd love to share with the Warren Miller audience? 

Protect Our Winters!


Do you have any sponsors, if yes, who?

Head, POC, Patagonia
