One month ago it ended right where it began. I thought about that moment for months. I imagined it completely different in my head. There was no sense of relief or watery eyes. That happened on top of Forester Pass 779 miles earlier when the high sierra passes were done. Instead, I was thinking about what's next. If 5,300 miles wasn't long enough what would be? #pct2018#pctyoyo
Can’t describe how excited I am for this winter! 😍🧗🏽♀️⛷ Back to Chamonix for January or somewhere new... Decisions👀

Still amazed by just how much this place has changed my life. At the end of last season, my new friend Sophia approached me with a loose idea for a ski film series, partially set in Japan with a number of other incredible athletes. After we all worked to develop this idea over the past months it’s been truly incredible to watch it come to fruition. We begin filming in Jackson tomorrow and head to Japan in one month. Just another day feeling thankful for everyone on this team (@veronicabelle@sophiaschwartz@maxmartski@tamirazinger@laura_gaylord@susietheis) and looking forward to seeing what we all create together. I expect this project to be a journey in constant evolution and am grateful for the brands that are supporting us in our endeavor: @flylowgear@biolite@browncowyogurt@firstname.lastname@example.org@ziplineski
Like I’ve always felt, find a passion, follow it, and watch barriers begin to breakdown.

Anyhow, thanks @benthomas for your questions last time!!
What was our favorite place? Best food? What people/communities did we find most enjoyable?
Overall, Utah was our favorite adventure spot. Mile for mile, the state is unmatched with its beautifully weird, sprawling natural landscapes. Each national park is so unique, yet so jaw droppingly pretty, you can’t help but do a double take everywhere you go. Coming from the PNW where the landscapes are just so different, we continue to be amazed.
Our favorite food would hands down be this delicious Oaxacan restaurant in Monterrey, NL, Mexico that actually took us 3 tries to finally snag a seat (mostly our fault), but when we finally did, we TREATED ourselves in all that goodness from mole platters to fresh jamaica juice, just WOW. Going along with that trend, we would have to say that the people we met during our time in Mexico really stood out to us. We loved the interactions we had there. Everyone was so friendly, even if we would stumble over our words in Spanish! It was great getting to cross paths with all the people we met there - one of our most memorable encounters being a father and a son who we accidentally stumbled upon while exploring a canyon. They were out relaxing, enjoying a nice outdoor bath, when all of a sudden we show up in our wetsuits and harnesses and they’re just looking back at us in their birthday suits. All four of us were shocked and surprised to say the least but thankfully they were very good humored about it. Later, we ran into them again and got a chance to share our stories of where we had been since last seeing them!
