We’ve all seen him … arms wide, halfway through a slow backie, seemingly flying above some monster cliff … scratch that .. Julian Carr is flying. Julian’s lofty exploits have landed him in seven Warren Miller films and he holds two world records for cliff jumps … few have the relentless drive to explore that ethereal world between skiing and flying like Julian.

The high-flying athlete today organizes mountain running races at ski areas across the West and continues his global search for cliffs that can accommodate his love of air time. Tune in and get some insight on how every skier can think past the fear.
