Everything Started in the 70s

Jay Peterson grew up skiing from the time he could walk. His parents were avid skiers since the 1950s. In his youth, Jay was a nationally competitive USSA freestyle skier from the Midwest. He was coached by early Freestyle greats such as Eddie Ferguson, Robert Young, Karen Huntoon, and Eddie Lincoln.

Skiing is Part of the Mountain Life and Not Just a Sport

Moving to Oregon in his 20s, he spent 10 years as a climbing and ski guide with Northwest Alpine Adventures. Eventually, he started a career at Portland State University where he taught in several departments and worked as an advisor and administrator. During his academic career, Jay continued to be involved in climbing and skiing.
