In December, Scott and I loaded up the van with our ski gear and warmest clothes. We headed out for nearly three weeks, chasing powder up to British Colombia and back. We’ve done this the last several years and each time it gets better as we push ourselves just a little bit harder. For me, the goal of this year’s trip was to first and foremost be present and really appreciate such a special trip with just my brother and I. Secondly, to venture safely into the back country. And finally, to continue to expand my community in these special winter places. Mission accomplished.
