Skiing for me is the best way to let go of any stressors in my life and is also a great way to get all of my energy out. I have been extremely lucky to grow up in a place with world class ski resorts and coaching right at my finger tips. Being a part of the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club has truly impacted my life for the better. Sadly, the beginning of this season has been cut short due to record high temperatures and little snowfall. I could not imagine a world where I didn't ski! I would like to pass on my love of skiing and give other kids the same opportunity that I have had, and to do this we must protect our winters.
