Female Speaker: Skiing has given me this whole lifestyle of this way of living being in the mountains. If I wasn't for skiing I just wouldn't really know what life would be like.
Male Speaker: I think all nature kind of gives me the same feeling of freedom just being away from just everyday lives. I don't know. It just feels right.
Male Speaker: It's so tough to keep going for it but at the same time when you get it, it feels so good.
Male Speaker: Be it mostly everything to do actually.
Male Speaker: So I thought I'd be prepared. I thought I'd heard all the stories and thought I'd be ready for it but there is pretty much nothing that compares to this place. It's a whole new world to share with.
Male Speaker: It looks a lot big from here, it's going to huge when you got there. If you freeze out I don't know, what you're going to do, you fall or you're in big trouble.
Male Speaker: That's a ski or you get really humble of the next second the whole thing was just going in I was going with it below me it was only rocks so I was really scared.
Male Speaker: It's like the avenue to a gallon of 2% of milk I guess. While seeing it there not much to doing or just go over the floor. End up to really lucky to be alive actually. IT was scary moments.
Male Speaker: This is human. We're all make mistakes and the important thing is that everybody learns some of it, things go and nothing really bad happened.
