Dave Ratner is a hard charging telemark skier from Denver. He put on his first ski helmet in 1998 while living (and skiing every day) in Telluride and has not spent a brain-bucket-less day on the mountain since. Now living in Denver, Dave spends every weekend chasing the pow around the Front Range. He’s a huge helmet promoter (“You wear your seatbelt when you drive. Wear a helmet when you ride.”) and has taken quite a few tumbles and branches to the noggin’… and keeps on kickin’.
