Michael Rooney


Michael Rooney has a whole lot of skiing experience and it shows in the way he discusses skis. Michael certainly doesn’t let age hold him back; he still competes at a relatively high level as a Masters Ski Racer as well as in the local Stowe Ski Bum races. When he isn’t racing he is continuing his lifelong pursuit of the perfect carving turn and emphasizes proper technique in his skiing. He describes his preferred terrain as anything steep where his superb edge control really shines. Michael is currently skiing on a slew of skis from Blizzard, Fischer, Rossignol, and Atomic, which made him a valuable addition to our test team thanks to his experience on multiple brands and lack of potential bias.
