So this ski season was slightly disappointing in the fact that I only got up 11 days compared to my 26 last year but I shouldn't be complaining. Of those 11 days over half were epic powder days! I had a great ski trip with friends from college and got to spend some great time with my uncle Dave! For only getting up a few times this year I would have to call the season a huge success. I learned to ski moguls better then ever before and am pretty sure I can ski down almost anything. It my not be pretty but I can get down it. This season was also a huge success as far as bleeds go. I prophylaxed before most ski days and only had a few minor bleeds! Considering the fact that I skied more difficult terrain this year I would have to say that not getting many bleeds is definitely a huge positive! I will be uploading a video of one of our great runs this year at Breckenridge! Its from the run Ore Bucket and there has to be close to a foot of powder! Sorry for the long video, I don't know how to edit yet and thanks to Kyle Fritz for the great fall footage! Next up, mountain biking in Moab April 15th and 16th, hopefully some sweet rock climbing and hiking, then Mt. Kilimanjaro!

Hello everyone! I haven't posted in awhile but I have some very exciting news! With the help of Laurie Kelley I have been asked to participate in a fundraiser for climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro that will benefit those suffering from hemophilia in Africa! The organization putting everything together is called Save One Life and is a fantastic organization that strives to help those with hemophilia that are in need. There are 10 other climbers going in August that are also trying to raise funds including another hemophiliac! Although I won't be climbing with the group we all have the same goal in mind and that is to improve the lives of hemophiliacs. Please visit the website listed below to find out more and hopefully donate a little to our cause. Also, check out the rest of the website since there are so many other ways to help! Thanks for all the support and please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this!
