By Any Means Necessary

Growing up in Ireland, writer Lisa McGonigle wasn’t immersed in snow and mountains. But a trip to the Pyrenees when she was 19 to try snowboarding realigned her priorities. Lisa scrimped her savings and made due with periodic trips until she graduated and set her sights on fulfilling her dream of ski bumming in British Columbia. While little rivals fresh lines on a powder day, she discovered the fine line between passionate and obsessed can be difficult to distinguish. What fuels your decisions?

If you want to read more about Lisa’s ski-bumming, check out her book Snowdrift.
