Last March break I got the opportunity to head out to Steamboat, Colorado to go skiing with my dad and brother. Snow was scarce and it was late season, so my dad decided to schedule some cat skiing in the backcountry with Steamboat Powdercats. We got about a foot of snow in the backcountry making the trip a great time and giving us fresh snow for the whole week. We got a chance to ski with their photographer and get some sweet shots. The experience was great, spending time in the backcountry with my dad and some amazing guides.

My favorite person to ski with, my dad. It’s pretty rare that my dad and I get to ski together because I’m always off skiing with some friends or competing, but it’s nice to get these types of trips where my dad and I can ski together. My dad’s been there for me since day one, holding me steady as I skied down the bunny hill, and he kept me on skis, even when I absolutely despised the cold weather, and that’s the best gift you could ever give to me. So it’s a great opportunity to ski with my mentor and the person who gave me the gift of skiing.

Rounding a pretty tight corner on this one. I came into an area of trees with way too much speed, and what was originally supposed to be a turn to save my life, ended up being a pretty cool looking slash turn. Lucky for me, our photographer was standing right there to capture it. Skiing away from things like these are what keep me skiing, the risks you take, always end up paying off, and getting shots like these are the rewards. Sometimes mistakes end up paying off.
