Park City Ski and Snowboard

Like many Park City residents, John Kanarowski is a lifelong skier. While at Dartmouth, he was on the college ski team.

“I grew up in Germany, my dad was a U.S. army officer and we were stationed in Germersheim, so that’s where I first got exposed to skiing.” Kanarowski said “I went to Dartmouth. That was the, if you will, pinnacle of my skiing. Afterwards, I moved out to California, in the mid-90’s. I did participate in a couple of the early extreme-skiing competitions. So, I had a lot of fun doing that as well.”
