Michael Rooney


Michael Rooney returns for another year of ski testing, and we’re thankful for his service! Michael brings nearly seven decades of ski experience to the test, and he still is averaging 100 ski days per year. He’s an aggressive skier who loves his Dodge Boots whether he’s in the race course or not. Sweetly, his favorite skier is Susan Dorn, and he’s a farmer by trade. Learning to ski at Stowe, Michael likes the steep stuff and he does so on his Salomon GS skis, his Stockli SL sticks, and his K2 SuperG boards. Obviously a speed freak, Michael would be a panther if he could be any animal.
