GoPro: Mother-Daughter Ski Day with Julia Mancuso

Happy Mother’s Day to the strong women who raise us, encourage us and inspire us.  Olympic gold medalist, Julia Mancuso, shares a special moment with her mother Andrea as they ski powder together at CMH Galena in Canada. Although Julia’s first ski coach was technically her mom on the bunny slopes, this is the first time these two have ever heli-skied together. This edit is all about slowing down from our busy schedules to spend time with family – and skiing powder of course.  Julia says it all with this line: “My mom was always there to encourage me and inspired me to be the best that I can be.”  A special thanks to CMH Galena for their hospitality and showing us some of the best ski lines in Canada.
