Incredibly honored to receive the "Inspired Leadership Award" from HEAL Utah at their annual spring breakfast this morning. Coolest trophy ever, and this means as much to me as any athletic achievement. HEAL Utah has guided and supported me on every step of my journey to becoming an environmental activist. Together with many other individuals and organizations, we are changing Utah and the world for the better. I'm excited about the opportunities ahead!
Fifteen years ago, my half-brother perished in an avalanche in Stairs Gulch. On Friday, I went and skied the line that killed him. It was a line that I've feared for a long time, and I was satisfied to ski it, in stable avalanche conditions with a group of good friends, as a tribute, celebration and remembrance of Martin and his life.
And when I got to the top, I could see why he was drawn to this place and its beauty. The view on the summit, with the Salt Lake Valley below, was unbelievable. Thanks to Rob Lea, Adam Clark and Eric Balkan for joining me to visit this very emotional and special place. #bigmtndreams
