Michael Carroll-Sherwin


Michael Carroll-Sherwin was a valuable addition to our test team this year. As a Gore Mountain product, he knows what it takes to ski it for real. Lately, he’s softened into desiring big pillow lines and steep chutes as his preferred terrain. He does so on his Blizzard Rustler 11’s for more than 55 days per year. He brings a quarter of a century of ski experience to our test and values his goggles more than any other piece of gear. When he’s not playing in the snow, he’s helping save the Earth as a Solar Installation Guru. If he could be any animal, he’d be a Billy Goat, because have you seen those things make their way around a mountain?
