What do you do when you´ve been skiing for 32 years?
When you´ve done so many slopes and all colors of runs that they all start to feel the same?
You go off piste.
Just to fiddle around a bit.
Until you see a video like this:
And you realize there is more to it then just fiddling around.
So you set yourself a goal of going heli-skiing in Canada some day.
The good thing is when you´ve lived in Norway for a while you meet people over 55 years old who still do this every winter.
Which is a good thing because it helps you understand there is still time to achieve this goal when you´re in your late 30´s like myself.
And you once believed things only went downhill once you hit 40.
And then comes another important lesson learned about goals.
Dare to share.
Because when you do, you might run into somebody who shares such a goal.
And since a lot of my friends are big into skiing as well chances are big this might be the case.
So this January I´m off with 3 friends for a 4 day training course to the freeride center in Austria.
Get the basic skills sorted out, see what else is needed and then make the jump to achieve this goal.
Life is great when you make it.
And when life is great, just try to figure out how to make it awesome.
