Today, I was reminded of what skiing really means to me. It is more than just a sport. It is a way of life, a passion and something I simply can't not do. Skiing has brought more to my life than I ever imagined at the age of 5.
I have enjoyed some of the most amazing moments with my family, built new friendships, experienced some of the most amazing sensations and come to find a place of zen. Skiing has been woven into my soul like another line of DNA. Skiing happens to take place in one of the most beautiful arenas in the world. The mountains!
I have learned a lot in the mountains and come to truly respect them. They have taught me the value of nature, family, friendships, spirituality, physical and mental strength. The mountains are a place of complete peace, freedom filled with crisp air and endless opportunity.
Skiing brings me to places that instill a feeling of peaceful freedom. Without it my life would not be in such simple balance. A balanced life is seemingly a challenge for us all. We race from job to job, task to task and often forget that slowing down is a key to the success of keeping the scales balanced.
I am looking forward to another amazing season of backcountry skiing in Oregon with my good friends. We will surely create some amazing stories, videos and photos that will open others minds to the sheer beauty that we are so blessed with in nature.
There is truly no feeling like skiing down a mountain.
Summit as Friends!
