Markos got his first taste of skiing at the age of four in Metsovo Greece and was instantly hooked. Since then he has travelled the world skiing in France, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, and the United States, in search of the biggest thrill. When he isn’t shredding it up during the winter, he captains sailing trips for fun around the New England area, Greece and Ireland. His interest in co-founding Zora grew out of his desire to connect with other skiing and sailing enthusiasts in the North East.
Vasilis’s love for skiing began at the age of eleven when he first skied Kaimaktsalan mountain in Greece. This love factored into his decision to attend the University of Vermont, known for its proximity to renowned East Coast ski mountains, and strong winter culture. Vasilis has since taken advantage of every opportunity to enjoy the winter wonderland, organizing ski trips with friends to Whistler, Colorado, New England and is now looking forward to doing so with Zora friends each year.
