One of My Favorite Forms of Movement– Skiing

by | Mar 3, 2021 | Podcast

When people ask me what my favorite sport is– they always expect me to answer with running; but that’s not exactly the truth.  I love skiing, and I have loved it since 1998 when I joined the Charlotte Breezer ski club. I initially joined to meet some people, and discovered a sport that I am passionate about. 

Since 2002, I’ve joined every National Black Ski Summit hosted by the National Brotherhood of Skiers ( NBS) except when I was in for the  four years while I was in surgical  residency.  It is because of Art Clay and Ben Finley and the NBS I not only found a sport I love, I found a family that has given me countless friends. This family grows every year. 

If you’re thinking about skiing or snowboarding as a sport you’d be interested in trying out– you should take this as a sign and do it! Because no matter how many injuries, I can’t imagine myself ever stopping. 

Episode Highlights:

  • How I discovered The National Brotherhood of Skiers 
  • The National Brotherhood of Skiers and its history
  • Why I love Skiing so much 
  • My knee injuries from skiing
  • Skiing in this new normal due to Covid
