"For me, life is mostly about enjoying the outdoors with my family and there's no better playground than Sun Valley." -- Zach Crist

A member of the US Ski Team from 1991-1998, Zach competed on the World Cup for 7 seasons.In 1999, he shifted his focus to the emerging event of ski cross. After 9 X Games appearances Zach tallied gold, silver and bronze medals becoming one of the sports pioneers alongside brother Reggie. Beyond competitive pursuits, Zach and Reggie have been exploring the world as backcountry skiers and guides. Their adventures have appeared in numerous ski films and TV shows featuring first descents in the Himalayas, New Zealand, Greenland, Alaska and at home in Idaho. Zach currently guides for Sun Valley Heli-Ski and Sawtooth Mountain Guides.

In the summer months Zach takes to the water: surfing and kayaking his way through the warm months, with a little mountain-biking thrown in for good measure.
