What's your favourite hill?
Well, I'm just a big fan of coming home to Mont Tremblant.
What's the most daring run?
It's not an official one, I still go out with an old buddy of mine to a spot in the woods where we used to build a track for board-cross. It's pretty amazing.
What hill scares you the most?
None of the runs really scare me - I did some backcountry in Alaska, that was scary. Expo [at Tremblant] when it's groomed and at its best, that's one of the toughest I've been on. It's like La Molina, in Spain, one of the hills I used to race at on the World Cup circuit - super-steep and icy.
Where do you avoid?
There are a few places, but I don't want to piss anyone off!
Where's your favourite backcountry?
Anywhere that's mellow. I haven't been to Revelstoke yet, but I like everything I hear about it, so I'd like to go out there. I have my little spots in Tremblant too.
Your favourite après-ski?
I've never really been an après guy. I've done it, but nowhere really memorable. I'm into Irish pubs, dingy places. I don't drink beer, but I like the ambience and the music.
Where was your a-ha moment, when you realized, "I want to be an Olympian"?
It was pretty early on. I started snowboarding when I was 13 or 14, and I wasn't really thinking of the Olympics, but I remember that I just thought, "This is what I want to do, I want to see where this takes me."
I'm actually about to go away on vacation, but that's mostly for my family [Anderson has two young daughters] If it was up to me, I'd probably just stick around Mont-Tremblant, this is where I want to be.
