Steve Porino: The Analytical Voice of Olympic Skiing

A Bend resident since 1999, Steve Porino, 43, was raised primarily outside Chicago, otherwise Connecticut, Vermont, Colorado, California, Utah and Oregon. His father, who grew up ski racing in Italy and Switzerland, passed that passion to his four kids. After graduating from the steeps of Illinois’ Wilmot Mountain—vertical drop 256—Porino took up at Vermont’s Burke Mountain Academy, where his heritage played out on longer and steeper runs.
