UOP Recap

Posted by piphunt on October 26, 2012 in skiing

It’s been awhile since I got out of my safety bubble. It’s not that I don’t scare myself on skis, I ski exposed lines where my heart is in my throat, or climb scary routes, but none of these require air awareness. It’s a skill I’ve always lacked. Back in the days of skiing half-pipe, […]
