Aaron's dedication to the sport began in earnest while racing in high school and taking weekend trips with friends up to Vermont and Maine. He attended school in VT where he truly fell in love with the mountains, and began touring and pushing 100 day seasons. After graduating from the University of Vermont, he headed out to Alta and spent the next three years backcountry skiing. He began pushing himself to ski LONGER days, FASTER on the uphill and HARDER lines of increasing technicality. For 2016 he plans to skin/hike/climb and ski 2.5 million vertical feet in a year to break the current record.
