I originally submitted this to 'my life through the lens' but i couldnt resist changing it to 'frozen'. I kept the description so you can learn more about me.
Skiing runs in my veins. I was put on skis before i was out of huggies, and have grown up on the mountain more than anywhere else. Skiing is perhaps one of the most imporant aspects of my life because i learned most of my hardest lessons through the battles i have faced as an elite racer. I have put so much of my life toward the dream of being an olympian, and have faced both great successes and great failures along the way. The most important thing that skiing represents for me is that no matter how horrible things can go, there is always something that will be there to escape to that is so completely amazing, it makes everything alright again. There is a freedom and a joy in skiing that can not be matched my anything else for me.
this photo was taken on a fantastic powder day at mammoth california
