I try and balance my work and play throughout the seasons. Usually this means I'm out riding or sking near dark. I spent a fantastic winter in Bozeman, Montana and learned the subsequent winter that I was not happy without snow in my life. I live for skiing in the winter and find mountain biking to be the next best thing when the trails are dry enough to ride. I am also fascinated/terrified by whitewater. I spent two summers raft guiding in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico and have not been able to escape whitewater since. During the spring of 2011 I rowed a raft down the Grand Canyon and have been looking for excuses to go back ever since. I started kayaking in 2011 because rafts are cumbersome for quick trips.
