Andy Mahre –Hakuna Some Powder!
Andy has skied professionally for over 9 years. He grew up in Naches, 16 miles from Yakima, WA and his home mountain is nearby White Pass on Highway 12. Andy is a kind, mellow, humble guy raised by Olympic greatness. His father Steve Mahre being a silver medalist in the 1984 Olympics only slightly behind his twin brother and Andy’s uncle Phil Mahre, Olympic gold medalist. All of the Mahre’s call White Pass home.
“Hukana Some Powder!” You know the song and the local tourism bureau coined the phrase for Andy’s effortless “no worries” approach to powder skiing. You will see Andy in many Warren Miller productions as well as ski movies by Poorboyz Productions, Matchstick Productions, Teton Gravity Research, and Nimbus Independent.
He is only 29 years old and currently sponsored by the greats in skiing -K2, Eddie Bauer/First Ascent, Dakine, Marker, and Evo. The Yakima Valley is very proud of this local phenomenon and invite you to enter to win a day skiing with Andy on his home mountain, White Pass!
