Mike Arnold and I share a fairly similar early life. We were both born and raised in Maine, we both began skiing in Maine (though he ski raced, I did not), and we both, eventually, moved to Colorado. Mike, however, is living a much cooler life than I am nowadays. While I continue to live in Colorado and write about the ski industry, he lives in Italy, working as a professional mountain guide in the Aosta Valley.

The North Face‘s A SKIER’S WAY tells Mike’s story, discussing both the benefits of such an awesome lifestyle and the risks existing in his line of work.
