It’s sort of like a dream right? Live in the place you grew up with a handful of your best friends and ski every single day. It’s tough to convince yourself that this is real life, or even a possibility. This life was never planned – and it was certainly unexpected to end up back where it all started, but not a surprise. With another year in the bag exploring areas from the past and re-discovering new places to roam in the backcountry, there’s no doubt in my mind I’m right where I want to be.
I’m proud of where I am from and proud to share the dream with so many close close friends. Thank you Khai and LJ for coming to my make-believe world and making AIT a reality. Thanks to Bobby Brown who made the entire Montana trip come to life, you are a true friend and I am grateful for the support you’ve given. And the biggest thank you of all to Jake Strassman – the creative overlord of all we do, AIT will have a lasting presence in skiing because of the heart you have put into it.

Level 1’s Pleasure
It feels good. Slamming into concrete walls, risking the backcountry unknown, being broke on the road… Some would call it hedonistic behavior, we call it living the dream, and this cast of characters delivers a vibrant depiction of this so-called sport of skiing. With a local tourist mentality, the simple joys are found near and far. From India, Switzerland and Japan, to British Columbia, Washington DC, and Alaska, it’s business in the front, party in the back, and no one is phoning it in. Level 1 continues to surprise with another must watch ski film in a lineage of classics, for your viewing PLEASURE
