Spring Break

March.20.2014

Last spring the Salomon Mountain Collective asked me to join the FreeskiTV crew at Chatter Creek for a ski trip with Cody Townsend, Josh Daiek and Leah Evans.  The stoke was high to join up with the crew and learn from some of the best in the industry.

The first thing that ran through my mind (other than the thunderous crack of my helmet splintering against the ice) was oh #$%* this is gonna end of my season?  Let me give you a little bit of the calm before the storm…

New Zealand has been on my bucket list of places to travel/ski for a long time now.  It was my first time to the land of the Kiwi (bird) and it did not disappoint.  The objective was simple, get as much time training on snow as possible in preparation for the Paralympics in #Sochi2014
