This photo is from today’s mission with Ms. @chrissykay! #wcw I’ve been creeping this girl on @Instagram for quite some time so naturally I was thrilled to find out we would be on the same trip to Argentina together with @oakley. An incredibly talented musician, heart of gold, a smile to melt, intelligent, thoughtful and a ripping skier… So much to crush on! I am so stoked to continue following and be inspired by beautiful lady’s journey and successes. @chrissykay 💙 @oakleywomen (at where the unicorns live)

Fear is one of the most powerful catalyst in life. It can propel us towards incredible growth or cause us to retreat in to safety. Ultimately we get to choose… utilize fear to achieve your greatest potential or admit your defeat. 📷 @tyads // @oakley First day in Argentina, I’ll take a cafe con leche, a side of scared shitless and extra stoke. #happygirl 👌

#wcw To my girl Super Jules. As a young ski racer I had a lot to look up to in @juliamancuso. Now as one of my best friends I still look up to this incredibly inspiring lady. Julia Mancuso is an Olympic champion, an extraordinary water woman, has a unparalleled flair for adventure, has more fun than anyone I know and is strong beyond measure. Thanks for inspiring me to be a more dedicated athlete and to celebrate and appreciate all things in life. Love you Jules! Here’s to celebrating powerful female role models! #superjules #funolympics #spyderactive @spyderactive 📷 @laurenross

Getting so stoked for my trip to down south and all sorts of memories are coming back. This picture is from my very first trip to South America. I was 18 years old and had just finished my first year of college. I worked all summer and saved about 2k. As I was getting ready to go back for my sophomore year my parents decided I was an adult now and should pay for my own education. So I bought a $900 plane ticket in to Santiago and out of Lima, Peru 3 months later. I took the rest of my savings and ski bummed through Chile and Argentina and eventually rode a 3 day bus to Peru to climb. I traded lifties cervezas for rides at the ski resorts but mostly just backcountry skied and slept in this tent that I named “Four Season Palace” (I may have returned everything I had ever bought at REI including stale power bars to purchase it, not my proudest moment but hey a girl needed a home). I can’t say it was always an easy or comfortable three months. I remember being cold, hungry and sometimes feeling lonely but more so than that I remember feeling incredibly alive like I was an explorer discovering my path in life. Little did I know that by not returning to college I had embarked on the beginning of an incredible education. Traveling, the mountains, challenges, adventures and new friends around the world continue to be my teachers and expand my mind. It’s fun looking back on those pivotal life moments and being grateful for the path that has led to here and now. #howdidiget_here  (at Refugio Frey)

Back home and straight to the training grind. #dedication @bernunlimited @jam_jars_📹 @colesax

Moments like this I often ask myself… HOW DID I GET HERE? I don’t really have the answer but I am filled with so much gratitude for the path that has led me to where I am. Just over two years ago I made a huge leap of faith to pursuit my dreams as a professional skier and model. I left behind a half dozen seasonal jobs that included ski tech, line cook, massage therapist and cleaning lady in pursuit of my passion. I lived out of my Subaru, crashed on my little bro’s couch, ate his food, chased snowstorms, worked my butt off and followed my intuition. I never could have imagined that this journey would take me so many times around the world, that I would get to meet so many incredible people and that I would be standing where I am. I can’t say that the road was always easy but it has been filled with so much growth and reward. Feeling super grateful to be right here, right now. Thank you for following along with me along my journey and for sharing all of your support and positive energy. #onelove #howdidiget_here (at Wanaka South Island NZ)

#throwback to one of my very first photoshoots. I’d traveled to #Bali for a 6 week surf trip after the ski season. When I arrived I discovered that there was a decent market for blonde models. I wasn’t totally comfortable in front of the camera at this point so I was grateful for the beautiful, awkward cows and twisting tree roots to add to the structure of the photos. Bali turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. I can’t wait to go back to experience the culture and surf. Photo: Andre Arktov

Yesterday the EPA proposed the first ever regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. My love for spending time in the mountains and snow, especially amongst beautiful glaciated peaks in my reason to #ActOnClimate. What’s yours? Photo: Mike Arzt
