Steph Jagger had her ripcord moment at the top of a ski lift. She was living in Vancouver where she had built a great life for herself.
She was a management consultant for a PR firm and had always chased success in every aspect of her life when one day she went skiing with some friends and at the top of the chairlift she saw a sign that read, ‘raise restraining device.’
Raise Restraining Device
That line turned into a mantra that would catapult her into her mission of chasing snow for 1 full year skiing around the world. She took out a second mortgage on her house, sold everything she owned except for her ski equipment and set out to crack open her life, and along the way she set a world record for skiing 4 million vertical feet in under 12 months.
