my name is logan imlach, and i love to ski. i was born on april 23rd, 1987 in anchorage, alaska, and split my childhood between anchorage and girdwood. i began skiing at a very young age, but in grade school switched over to snowboarding (because it's what the cool kids were doing). then in middle school, after getting a C in an english class, rather than taking away my season pass to alyeska, told me that i was still allowed to go to the mountain, but i had to ski instead. this turned out to be one of the best things that had ever happened to me, because, little did i know, it returned me to one of my greatest passions in life.
through high school i spent my time skiing and playing hockey, culminating in my USASA national title in superpipe in 2005. i then left skiing for a season, in pursuit of a pipe-dream college hockey career, but quickly returned. in the spring of 2007 i returned to the competition scene, and won the only competition that i entered that season, the US Collegiate Nationals in slopestyle.
the following season, i went on to pursue the competition scene with the oh-so-common illusion of making the x-games. this ended abruptly with the destruction of my right knee, leading to a full acl replacement and lateral miniscus shaving. after that, riding park wasn't nearly as appealing, so i found myself exploring the backcountry and scouring anchorage for handrails. it was then that i found myself on my true path in skiing: filming on things not touched by a snow cat. after two seasons of filming with my childhood best friends, Matt Wild and Travis Reid, i finally got my big break, winning Level 1 Productions' Superunknown competition.
winning that competition has truly changed my life, and i cannot thank Josh, Freedle, and Kyle enough for the opportunity to get my skiing onto the big screen. these days, i'm doing everything that i can to travel around skiing (when my boss gives me ski leave).
when i'm not skiing, i'm either golfing, cooking, hanging out with my super cool girlfriend Kelsey, or working as a civil engineer at Rodney P. Kinney Associates in Eagle River, Alaska.
