LOVE WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL

cannned-heat asked: Sierra! I'm an 18 year old adventure seeking girl from Canada and just want to tell you what an inspiration you are. I love skiing, skating, and would love to one day try surfing as well. Your posts on instagram always keep me hyped, you're so coo! How do you manage to stay dedicated to the healthy and wholesome diet and stay away from junk foods? And what's your take on alcohol? Those are the most detrimental things in my lifestyle that I'm working on eliminating, it's hard! Advice?

Why Hello! Thanks so much for the kind words. Glad my adventures are fueling your stoke! I am stoked you are conscious about a healthy lifestyle! I find so much passion in food. I love feeling good and notice how much my diet directly correlates to my physical and emotional state. I put a LOT of love and dedication in to food and I truly believe it pays off. When I’m home I budget towards all organic foods (bulk sections and certain seasonal produce are actually quite affordable) and invest time in to preparation. I love creating so food has become an art for me. Instead of focusing on avoiding junk foods I focus on thinking about all the incredible, nutritious and delicious foods I get to put in my body. Every day becomes an amazing challenge to become more in tune with exactly what my body needs to perform and feel amazing.Β 

As far as alcohol… ya know, it’s just really not good for you. I used to love to “party” and couldn’t understand how someone could ever cut that part of life out. But now that I drink very seldomly I find that I have SO much more energy and time to truly party - on the mountain, first chair to last chair, on that extra skate lap, the extra long surf session of the day. The bottom line is that you can ingest a substance to feel high or you can find that energy inside of you.Β 

I agree with you, living a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy - sometimes its easier to just hop on the band wagon with your friends and go for pizza and beer, but ultimately the reward for the discipline is so incredible! Let me know how it goes. Lots of love on your journey! xox Sierra

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 πŸ’™ @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. πŸ“· @tyads // @oakley First day in Argentina, I’ll take a cafe con leche, a side of scared shitless and extra stoke. #happygirl πŸ‘Œ

#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 πŸ“· @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)

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)

Girl stuff.

#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
