Banks is a professional Skier from Sun Valley, Idaho. He spent eight years in the competition scene before starting his web series Adventures In Transition which led him on a much different path through the ski world where creativity would take priority rather than points and podiums.
Most Memorable Ski moment:
My most memorable ski moments are the times I get to ski my home mountain when the snow is deep and all of my closest friends are in the fold. Just does not get any better.
Funniest Ski Story:
This is a really tough one. There have been a lot of these moments over the years. One that comes to mind usually is skiing behind my buddy Cole Wells on closing day at Sun Valley on about a quarter mile of dirt down a steep pitch while he's dressed head to toe in a woman's marching band outfit from the seventies, conductors hat and all, absolutely WHALING on a trumpet as we ski under a packed chairlift. Something about that scene always makes me chuckle.
Craziest Thing Ever Done on a Ski:
Too many to count. But as I look back I think that hucking myself around a sheet ice halfpipe back in the day while competing was by and large the scariest and craziest thing I ever did.
Favorite Crosson Ski Model:
The Raider! Marauder when its Deep!
Favorite Thing About Crosson Skis:
Being there from day one of development, watching the brand grow and the product become exactly what we had envisioned! We make a ski like no one else in the industry, and our quality and performance are what shine through. Proud to be a part of a brand that has taken creative liberties in the stagnant world of ski design!
