As a professional freeskier, I put my life on the line day in and day out. A majority of the lines I ski require human powered access. Not only do I have to climb what I ski, I have to nail the line, every time. Snow may be forgiving but rocks and ice are not. 5-Hour Energy gives me liquid alertness. The container is so small I hardly know I have it along. Once I crack the lid and let it flow, I feel the energy come back and I get my game face on. 5-Hour Energy doesn't conquer my fear, but it allows my to recover my energy and face life's challenges one turn at a time.

What is freeskiing?
Freeskiing is the umbrella name given to ski mountaineering, backcountry skiing, freeskiing competitions and freestyle skiing. Any form of skiing that isn't timed is technically freeskiing.

Where did the name come from?
What I do was at once called Extreme Skiing. Then "Extreme" became the it word of the 90's. Once Taco Bell started talking about extreme and tacos together a name change was mandatory. I am more of a ski mountaineer/backcountry skier than anything. I am constantly in pursuit of laying down tracks on a blank white canvas. Sometimes that involves beating other people to fresh powder, and other times it means skiing someplace that nobody else ever skis. Unless I am fortunate enough to have a helicopter drop me off, I have to earn my turns by first climbing what I ski. I look for steep and deep. Not your ski area steep, but more along the lines of serious-consequences-if-you-fall steep.
