Skiing is about more than simply making turns down a mountainside. It’s the feeling of freedom that comes from standing on a quiet mountain peak. The excitements of breaking new ground, of going further than you’ve gone before. Of taking on new challenges, and exceeding expectations while never forgetting how to enjoy a regular day of lapping slopes.
Heading to the train station early in the morning while the streets are still asleep. Sunken deep in the backseat of a car watching the landscape roll by. Whatever the scenes from our own journeys, travelling is an unmistakable part of a skier’s life.
Life in the mountains is more than just time spent buckled into ski boots. It’s also about widening our horizons and finding inspiration. Preparing ourselves for what tomorrow might bring.
For some of us, life in the mountains is like a drug that we crave. When away from it for too long, urges call us back. When we close our eyes, we imagine that feeling of a good day in the mountains.
