Congratulations are in order for Eric on finishing all the 14ers on skis this past weekend on the East face of Handies in challenging snow conditions. I’ve skied 6 14ers with Eric over the past decade of the project. Some epic trips and lines!

The lost sheep found his way! Congratulations Eric.
I remember meeting you up at Como Lake when you were still in high school, and maybe even before you started skiing?
Nice accomplishment dude.

Congratulations Sir!!! Dedication and a lot of heart. Not to mention huge brass B_LLS
On one of the winter trips Steve arranged. Harvard, Columbia. You were sitting in the doorway of your tent in the snow, polar cold. During our conversation you looked up with deep sincerity and said "There is. No place. on earth. I would rather be than right here" I think you were maybe 15 or 16?
Way to go man.
