Closing the Outdoor Knowledge Gap

BY DAVID STEELE
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

For those who grow up in the outdoors, it comes easy. It is much easier to be a competent skiier, or climber, or adventurer if you come at it from an early age. Yet contrary to popular belief, David Steele shows that old dogs CAN learn new tricks. The great benefit to a person trying something new is people who have been on that path before themselves. David shows that life can be challangeing and exciting for all of us at all stages of the journey, no matter if you are a cohort, a mentor, or an up-and-comer.

Skiing since the age of three, Jackson oozes pure enjoyment on snow and is easy to spot from the huge grin on his face. Jackson represented NZ in freeski at the 2014 and 2015 FIS Junior World Champs and at the 2016 Youth Olympic Winter Games. His disciplines are Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Big Air.   Picture by Hannah Peters.
