Deepening connections with lady skiers
Some of my biggest joys over the past years have been skiing with other women. There is nothing like going down a run on a powder day that is WAY too difficult with three other ladies, falling 10 times on the soft fluffy snow, and giggling uncontrollably. The women I’ve skied with have been so supportive of each other, helping each other up when they fall down (literally) and encouraging each other to push the boundaries of what I thought was possible.
Jumping off the cliff
There have been many, many times learning to ski where I have been in situations that were terrifying. That’s the thing about skiing - you often go up a lift without really knowing what you’re getting into, and then you have to make it down in one piece. There’s no going back down the lift (believe me, I have asked)! Once you jump off the cliff, sometimes literally on the mountain, taking metaphorical jumps are not as tough. Recently I started my own business, and I do not think I would have had the courage to do so had I not overcome so many of my fears on the ski hill. Starting your own business is very similar to looking down a mountain and realizing you are in way over your head. On Powder Mountain, let the powder break your fall and your friends help you up. We promise you’ll want to go down again.
