Laughing at this the whole way. So true!
Laughing at this the whole way. So true!

It took me three days to recover from this one: Ripping up Mount Baldy with a group of shredding sit-skiers, then nordic skiing out to a yurt in the backcountry, then an 11K x-country ski and then, of course, heli skiing powder all day! I was humbled to say the least, not nearly the skier i used to be, after taking last year off from a near death bought with an internal staph infection, but i managed to focus on my successes instead of giving into my propensity of jumping to the negative. Being surrounded by positive people helps with that and I'm overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for Higher Ground Sun Valley who put this trip together and Sun Valley Heli Ski who busted their asses to make it a reality.

My GoPro was put on the helmet of fellow sit-skier, David Poole, since i was too nervous to deal with anything other than myself at the moment and, luckily, i ended up with a couple shots, which i took a stab at editing into a little video for you. Here it is with some pics from the adventure. Enjoy!
