Givego’s founder and CEO, Willie Ford, knows the challenges of being a ski racer. Willie is a 2X All American Ski Racer from the University of New Hampshire. Julia Ford, Willie’s sister, is a 2014 Olympian. Willie’s other two sisters were also competitive racers, and national team athletes.

Willie set out to create a platform that allows its users to connect and learn from the best of the best. Givego was recently launched and has been gaining serious traction. Now, you can upload a short video of you skiing, explain what you’re working on, and choose your pro. The list is growing fast, but currently great ski racers are available on the platform. Names range from Steven Nyman, to River Radamus, to Alice Merryweather, to George Steffey, Jared Goldberg, Julia Ford and more.
