Really cool story out of Canada where Mark Bentz, a skier who lost his vision at a young age, attempted to ski 25,000 vertical feet in one day. Mark worked with Braille Mountain Initiative and the guide team at Great Canadian Heli-Skiing to accomplish his ambitious goal. Inspirational dude, he’s got a lotta grit.
