The one moment in my life that defines me was on a very sunny march afternoon when i signed into the sandy boville invitational. at the time i was scared of hitting jumps over 40 feet but when i showed up on this march day, that all changed. i went up the chairlift for the first first time that day and saw the biggest jump i had ever seen. the air time must have been close to 3-4 seconds. almost 70 feet from end of the takeoff to the top of the landing. this jump changed the way i am today. the feeling of that jump made me want to keep hitting it over and over again. i was addicted to the adrenaline rush. Now i will hit any jump i will be able to get enough speed for. I am able to learn bigger and harder tricks because i can hit bigger jumps. this changed the way i look at skiing forever, I no longer show up and say i don’t really want to hit the big jump. I show up and say lets get the session on the big jump started.
