The idea of the blog was based on my passion for skiing and the realisation of many top name athletes losing their life to the sport but no central area to embrace them. It also something that...
Riley Poor is another skier enthusiast who delved his expertise into the freeskiing industry not in his talents in skiing but his dedication to making the industry what it is today.

Pekka Hyysalo and Freeskier magazine →
This is a link to the back story of Pekka Hyysalo, he is getting stronger everyday so let’s shout out our support. Freeskier magazine is the number one freeskiing magazine out in the market so please check out there website, read some articles and if you like subscribe to receive their monthly issue.
I’ll be talking about the story of Pekka Hyysalo in the next coming post but firstly wanted to share this video that shows a severely debilitated free-skier given a second chance to live and do what he loves. Looking at life so positively regardless of the tragedy placed upon him. I also plan to memorialise those mentioned by fellow newschoolers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
