New England Ski Journal: When were you first introduced to the sport?
Jay Gamble: I was a “late arrival” to skiing with my first day of skiing at age 14. My family had a vacation home near Cataloochee Ski Area in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, and I grew up skiing mostly at Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain and Cataloochee. As such, I was never in any competitions or racing programs. I was a low intermediate skier through high school and early college years.
