This is one of many stories we want to share about those who showed our motto for Elevant.

“I grew up with two older brothers who always did the cool boy backyard adventures whether it was skateboarding, snowboarding, or mountain biking. I remember my brothers showing me how to ride a snowboard on their $10 Walmart kicker. It was great to learn from them growing up. I’m not saying I’m a professional snowboarder now, trust me I’m not.
Since I was young I’ve had this weird obsession with Colorado. My dream has always been to go snowboarding on the Rocky Mountains. This past winter I had the opportunity to go.
The experience was unbelievable. Now the funny part was I have never been to a big ski resort before only backyard and smaller scaled resorts. I went BIG. It was just me, my board, and massive amounts of snow. I will never forget standing up on the mountain looking in the distance and only seeing blue sky and mountains. I felt my inner childhood self fill up with excitement and fear. I had no idea what I was doing on massive mountains when I was not that good. But I’m alive and I can’t wait to go back.

Rise and Go”
