Eric is originally from Minnesota but came to British Columbia, Canada to pursue his PhD in high altitude physiology. He spent four years competing on the US National Ski Mountaineering Team before shifting his focus to purely adventure based skiing. He currently skis for Arc’teryx and helps other athletes develop their mountain fitness through his business, Ridgeline Athletics. Eric currently lives in Squamish, BC with his wife and three month old daughter.
We all know that not everyday in the mountains is bluebird glory pow skiing. Eric Carter is very lucky to get to spend a significant amount of time chasing those perfect days but along the way, mistakes were made. Rather than stand up here, patting himself on the back about the rad stuff he has done, this presentation is about the misadventures that helped shape Eric as an athlete, and led him to where he is today.
