So just to update on the last 6 months, here's what happened. After I got back from Nepal, I chilled at home and spent the holidays with the family and friends in Indy.
Me and Grandma Kojetin at Thanksgiving
In January, I left to work on the Ski Patrol at Powder Mountain, Utah. It was a fantastic experience and a dream come true. I've worked at other ski areas before I came to Korea. I was a Ski Instructor at Loveland, Colorado and I worked the lifts at Alta, Utah. Working at Powder Mountain though was completely different and a super special place. I spent the month skiing with my dad, working and training with the patrol, learning about avalanches, and guiding powder cat-skiing tours.
Skiing in the Enchanted Forest, possibly the coolest place I've ever skied.
Skiing with Dad
Digging Snowpits in the Avalanche I Class.
Digging Snowpits on our own.
Dad Skiing more Powder.
We stayed in Condos at the base of the mountain.
Occasionally, we were Cat Skiing Guides.
Dad loves his fat skis. Maybe I should send this picture to Black Diamond???

Sunny Powder Days are the best!!!
Life is Good :) (Faceshots are too!)
