Steph Jagger is a Guinness World Record holder, published author, & avid skier; and from July 2010 to May 2011, she circumnavigated the globe in search of one thing: snow. What she didn't plan on finding atop the world's whitest peaks, was herself.
For a year, Steph traveled and skied full-time and in the end, she skied over 4.1 Million vertical feet, breaking the world record for most vertical feet ever skied in a single year. Her original goal was 4,000,000 feet—but when she found out about the record she couldn’t help but beat it!
In our interview Steph shares candidly what went into planning and executing on such a bold trip, and how she was able to translate that experience into her new book, Unbound: A Story of Snow & Self-Discovery.
