About this Official
[ Contact Jim via Email ]
  Name: Jim Forster Nickname: [NA]  
  Hails From: West Palm Beach, FL USA    
  What got you into officiating?
After skiing in my 1st U.S.Nationals tournament, I wanted to become more active in the officiating part of the sport.
  Why do you continue to officiate?
I want to see barefoot competitions continue to take place and without officials that wouldn't be possible. It also gives me a different perspective on the sport, seeing it from an official's eyes.
  Who has inspired you in this sport?
The list is long, but here are a few names: Mike Seiple, Ron Scarpa, Paul McDonald, Andy Sable, Keith St. Onge and Dave Small.
  What skiers have you enjoyed watching and why?
I really enjoy watching Ben Groen, Ashley Stebbings, AJ Porreca and Georgia Groen because they are all incredible skiers and continue to improve. They are the future and we need them to stay in the sport.
  Do you have a nickname and how did you get it?
The 'Gorilla', because I'm hard on equipment.
  What other activities do you participate in?
I used to play ice hockey, but haven't played in a while. I still skate though. When I'm not flying ( my profession ) or working on my house, I'm out getting my feet wet.
  What is your motto?
Have a Strong Mind and Body
