These are words I carry with me day to day as I run, ski and explore the mountains. Mountain lifestyle is about so much more than finding a trail through the forest and up to a jagged peak. It is a simultaneous sense of freedom and solitude. It is a strange mix of laughable energy and thrilling fear.Breathing in mountain air and pushing my limits in sport is the cleanest burning and most sustainable energy source I know of.
What better way to fuel yourself than reaching a limit you never thought possible in a mountain setting you never thought attainable?
Finding a way to achieve what you thought wasn’t possible is the most rewarding experience and why I chose to pursue sport as my career.
I compete internationally in cross-country skiing with the Canadian National team and represented Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Wherever my racing takes me, Buff is always there!
To choose a favorite Buff is tricky business, but let’s just say my ‘preferred’ choice is the Merino Buff. This product pairs sport and mountain lifestyle perfectly. I love my Merino Buff for its breathability, warmth and versatility. Using the Merino Buff on the ski trails for training on the ever-so-common -20 training days or backcountry skiing for warmth at high altitude as well as extra UV protection. Whether I’m racing, training or backcountry skiing, there is a Buff product to outfit my adventure.
