Gin Chao moved from Beijing, China to the US with $80 in his pocket. Despite his father’s disapproval of spending his days skiing, Gin was able to pursue his passion for telemark skiing in Utah with the success of his business, Lone Pine Bakery, and prove to his father that you can pursue more than one passion in life.
