When we're born, we're all destined to become something. Some of us are lucky enough to become skiers.
Throughout our lives our interests in skiing evolve, from following our parents around the hill to racing, park, and backcountry exploration and ski mountaineering. Skiing then becomes a piece of our life that we inevitably share with our children, grandchildren, and friends. Skiing becomes who we are; It becomes our culture.
But one thing overlooked is skiing as a life path. We don't realize the enjoyment we find when we land a new trick might be topped by moments that are yet to come. When we're in our twenties and thirties, we might not realize we still have so much of this ski life left to live.
