Skier, foodie, ninja, Warren Miller fan and digital designer. Acting at the fulcrum of art and computer science to create great work for living human beings. Fueled by craft-beer, beef sticks, and loud music.
Markus's skiing spans almost 4 decades having started at the age of 10 on a local hill in the neighborhood. He spent his high school years dreaming of living the ski life in Nelson, B.C. and turning the ripe age of 40 skiing 100 days a year with a silver pony tail. That didn't materialize but his search for a home mountain ultimately led to Telluride. Markus lives in Ouray, Colorado located 7 miles as a raven flies from some of the best resort skiing in the country.
Attempting to ski 1MV (one million vertical feet) in a season is a challenge he is looking forward too, especially knowing it will help grow the sport and bring awareness to the shrinking snow sports community. Markus spent 10 years riding/racing downhill mountain bikes in the off-season but now enjoys hiking and hitting the gym to stay in shape.
Markus is passionate about skiing, sustainability, mountain living and working with his clients to achieve their goals. As a freelance IT consultant he works with high-end boutique clients to develop their digital footprints and digital infrastructure.
