Spring Skiing Video

The latest, greatest crust skiing adventure video!  Check it out here: I had a ton of fun working on this project.  In case it isn’t already apparent, I REALLY like skiing, and just want to share it and inspire people to get out and explore.

World Cup Thoughts

Four weeks, seven races, ten flight legs, and a whole lot of skiing.  The last month has been a whirlwind- exhausting, exhilarating, at times frustrating, and unquestionably one of the best experiences of my life.
