Elyse Saugstad’s If There’s a Will, There’s a Way
For freeskier Elyse Saugstad, if there’s a will there’s a way. In her years as an outdoorswoman, Elyse has brushed against death, faced mind-numbing fear, and won the respect of her peers in a male-dominated field.
Saugstad’s experiences have given her a unique perspective that is valuable not only to athletes but to anyone who wants to develop their mountain and life instincts, learn how to conquer and use fear to find success, and achieve their goals. Join Saugstad for a funny, honest and down-to-earth presentation about what it means to be a successful woman and mother in the ski industry.
