Sustainability

Summer is creeping to a close – as is my time at home, time with a job, time before school starts, and time to make decisions about the upcoming ski season. To alleviate the concerns and doubts that people have expressed about my future as a skier: I promise that I’ll be on the start line this winter. This…

My leg is broken

Things happen all the time. Some things are good, some things are bad, and some things are more grey. And all things happen for a reason, right? A few things happened to me on Sunday, the most notable was probably breaking my leg (that’s what this post is mostly about, but please bear with me…
