An Appeal to David Wise #Olympics #Skiing

Congratulation to David Wise, the first Olympic Gold Medalist in the Skiing Half-Pipe competition. David, we met at Park City just before you left for Sochi. You were so nice and unassuming. I think what you represent as an athlete, husband, and dad is so valuable. Please come on my tweet chat – #DadChat – for just one hour some Thursday evening and let’s inspire others together…email me at: [email protected].

How to Ski Out of This World

From across the valley, see where we skied...note the tiny ski tracks on the left AND the old avalanche tracks on the right! Click on the photo to see it larger.

Our last day of our heli-ski trip in British Columbia – in the Cariboo Mountain Range – was probably the best day of skiing in my life. We skied 30,120 vertical feet, which is slightly more than the 29,029 height of Mt. Everest. This was a trip with CMH (Canadian Mountain Holidays) and there were 45 guests for our week, from Japan, Canada, France, Germany, Austria, Brazil, Spain, and a few of us from the States.

Please note: Final and FULL videos of our experience are now included at the bottom of this post!
