A 2 Million Vertical Foot Goal Achieved

I admire people who dream big and then actually go out and achieve their goals. Here’s a guy, Greg Hill, who decided to climb 2 million vertical feet in a year and then went out and actually did it in some of the most spectacular ski country in the world.

Video (The music track tends to drowned-out the audio at times, but it’s still some amazing footage):

I have been on several backcountry ski trips to the Canadian Rockies. The scenery is spectacular and the skiing is epic.

Your dreams don’t have to be as grand as Greg Hill’s. Instead they might be to experience a new culture, visit a new continent, challenge yourself to climb a new mountain, or learn to scuba dive on an exotic island. Whatever your adventure dream is, give Off Trail Travel a shout and we’ll help you plan the dream adventure of a lifetime!


About Mike

I have a passion for adventure travel that began in 1989 with my first overseas trip: climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Having never been to a foreign country, Africa felt like being on another planet; I knew then and there I was hooked on travel. Since that time, I have visited all seven continents and dozens of countries. I’m using the experience I’ve gained in planning my own trips to help my clients plan their own adventures through my adventure travel company (http://www.offtrailtravel.com). After working as a firefighter for the US Forest Service in California and Wyoming for three years, I moved to Durango, Colorado where I graduated from Fort Lewis College with a degree in accounting. After graduation I moved to the Denver area where I worked in a Big Eight accounting firm to obtain my CPA license; soon afterward I began a career as an auditor with the Colorado Department of Education. My background in accounting helped me develop detailed-oriented skills that have been extremely useful in researching and planning my own travel over the years. I think this provides a unique asset to my clients in putting together their adventure travel plans. I currently live in Golden, Colorado with my wife Valerie, who shares my love of adventure travel. I’m an active member of the Colorado Mountain Club where I lead trips for club members and have taught ski lessons in their Telemark Ski School. I enjoy skiing, mountain hiking, trail running, photography, and astronomy. I take any opportunity I can get to explore new places, whether it’s on the other side of the world or just down the road.
