Ski Nation Founding Skier
Meet Billy, Ski Nation’s non-celebrity face of skiing. Billy is the best all-round skier that you have never met or heard of. He is more than an expert at alpine, cross-country, telemark, backcountry, and has even been known to throw down a flip or spin from time to time. Did we mention that he once flew 181 meters (594 feet) Nordic ski jumping?
His home ski area is a little place outside Saranac Lake, NY called Dewey Mountain where he started skiing at age 6.
So we thought that Billy would be the best representative for the all-round commitment of Ski Nation to be for all skiers and all ski areas regardless of size, type, or how much money they have. Small ski areas are like Billy Demong… you don’t have to be super famous to be great.
In his spare time Billy Demong won the Olympic Gold Medal and the World Championships in Nordic Combined skiing. OK, the guy’s been on four Olympic Teams, but he’s just another person that loves riding the snow. Welcome to Ski Nation.
