I actually grew up skiing in Southern California. After our family moved to Texas, ski trips became less frequent. However, I still always felt a strong draw towards the mountains and loved the snow!
Four years ago, I got laid off from my corporate job and instead of looking for another, I decided to adventure a little. One of the things I wanted to do was get back in the mountains. However, knee twisting injuries made skiing difficult.
So I decided to learn how to snowboard! Four years later, I'm still constantly stoked to ride!
Since that first season, I had an idea of combining my other passion of traveling with snowboarding. I wanted to take a 3-4 month long snowboarding roadtrip!
However, at the end of that first season, I started my own company. Fast forward 3 years and I was working 80+ hours a week running my company and working part time as a construction salesmen.
After missing my Grandmother's funeral because I was so busy, I decided to step back and re-evaluate priorities.
Then, what started out as an idea for a short roadtrip to a conference quickly turned into a very rushed, duct taped together plan for the ultimate snowboarding roadtrip. A trip that took me around the Northwestern part of the U.S. for 3 months and the European Alps for 3 weeks.
It truly was the Snowboarding trip...or, actually, trip, it truly was the TRIP of a lifetime!
Well, for this 2017/2018 ski season, I'm doing it again!
I wish I could tell you where I'm going but, honestly, I haven't figured all that out quite yet! I'll probably do some of that planning once I'm already on the road! Haha!

Along my journey last year, I decided to also raised money and awareness for The Alzheimer's Association through their second signature fundraiser called, The Longest Day. My Longest Day is dedicated to my Grandmother who passed away from Alzheimer's.
I am raising money and awareness again this season.
Support my Snowboarding Longest Day activity by making a donation on my Longest Day page HERE
100% of all donations go directly to the Alzheimer's Association.
See all of you on the road!!
