After skiing 2.5 million human-powered vertical in 2016 and setting the new world record, I plan to continue skiing in earnest while also balancing my life a bit better, valuing relationships with others, and building community and place.
Wool! (Isn't that enough??) Great products that are designed to an incredibly high level. Skinning 10k per day means I need to have gear that will last. Also, I love how colorful it is!

In the same way you would do an avalanche danger red flag checklist at the start of a tour, do a heuristic run through with the group at the beginning of the tour. It's better to be "that guy" than to be buried in an avalanche.
World record holder for most human-powered vertical feet skied in a year. Completion of a 25-hour tour with no breaks (more than 10min for water and food) earning 24,000 feet in that time and skiing all 21-named runs in Days Fork in Alta, UT. (Jan. 7th&8th 2015)
