This winter marks my 15th year as a professional skier, meaning I have spent half my life skiing as a job. I am incredibly lucky to be able to lead this lifestyle, and throughout the years I have grown to appreciate all the aspects of skiing, from the strict regimen of slopestyle competition circuits to the unlimited freedom of the backcountry. I wouldn’t be the skier I am today without experience from the entire spectrum of sliding on snow, and this video tries to convey that message. Although I am now entering for me uncharted territory in the ski-mountaineering domain, I will never forget my roots, and my style will always be influenced by my history. The coming winter will see the start of my first full movie project, the details of which will remain secret for now. Here’s to another fifteen years of awesomeness! – Jacob Wester
