It’s sort of like a dream right? Live in the place you grew up with a handful of your best friends and ski every single day. It’s tough to convince yourself that this is real life, or even a possibility. This life was never planned – and it was certainly unexpected to end up back where it all started, but not a surprise. With another year in the bag exploring areas from the past and re-discovering new places to roam in the backcountry, there’s no doubt in my mind I’m right where I want to be.

I’m proud of where I am from and proud to share the dream with so many close close friends. Thank you Khai and LJ for coming to my make-believe world and making AIT a reality. Thanks to Bobby Brown who made the entire Montana trip come to life, you are a true friend and I am grateful for the support you’ve given. And the biggest thank you of all to Jake Strassman – the creative overlord of all we do, AIT will have a lasting presence in skiing because of the heart you have put into it.
