There are a multitude of ways to feel it
The anticipation at dawn when it’s snowed overnight and you see the skies parting to become a bluebird day. The first ride up, seeing a blank canvas in every direction, feeling the cold outside but being warmed up by the inner fire of anticipation. The butterflies in your stomach when you stand on top, tighten your straps, make sure your all your zippers are done up, and are about to drop in. The run down, effortlessly floating through the powder, weaving through giant forests, over tops of rollers, and testing your limits of speed; while laughing like a kid the entire way down. And finally, that feeling of elation when you reach the bottom, trying to catch your breath through an ear-to-ear grin, fully charged and ready to repeat the process all over again. These moments are what we live for, and occur in abundance every winter here in British Columbia’s mountains.
These moments produce a higher version of oneself: It’s You, Elevated.
