  What got you into barefooting?
Watching my then boyfriend and his friend try it. Got the bug when I saw another women foot and not take a beating! Thought - if she can do it, I can do it!
  How did you learn to barefoot?
Initially from a few guys. Then I got smart and saw a women foot. Made all the difference in the world. Women generally ski smarter - not stronger. After that, I seeked out the professionals to keep me on the right track.
  Who was your first barefoot instructor?
Mike Whitney from Denver, CO
