My buddy John Olson was recently featured in the Aurora Sentinel newspaper for winning a terrific prize. Please look at the link as well as the video link at the bottom of the article.

Skiing Vail with GoPro and Garage Band

// December 7th, 2011 // No Comments » // Skiing, Stress Free Moments

I had fun skiing Vail with my friend Mark French who is also the President of Leading Authorities Incorporated – a speaker’s bureau that provides me many corporate speaking events.
Skiing with Mark gave me an opportunity to test out a new GoPro HD POV camera as well as Garage Band music software .
What you are about to see was made purely for fun to test this system for future use.  I found the camera easy to use, however the mic leaves much to be desired.  As for the music – for a first timer I couldn’t be more pleased with the ease of use and the end result.

Ice Climb at Night

It might be cold out, but at least it’s dark.  After a full day of skiing it was nice to meet up with my good friend James Whorton for some night ice climbing.  It was our first frozen climb of the season so it was good to knock the rust off our tools and knuckles as we climbed Pumphouse in East Vail.
If you have any desire to try ice climbing give Apex Mountain School a call and come give it a shot.  Good fun.
