In 2011 Steph went on a journey she called The Vertical Feat. She quit her job and circumnavigated the globe in search of snow, and whenever she stopped she skied as many vertical feet as she could and ended up breaking a world record for “the most vertical feet skied in one year.”
Her book, UNBOUND, is her story of shaking off the life she had in order to search for the life she wanted. She quit her job, took a second mortgage on her house, sold everything except her ski equipment and her laptop, and bought a plane ticket. From the mountains of North and South America to Asia, Europe, and New Zealand, Steph stretches herself to the physical, and emotional limit in some of the most beautiful places on Earth and winds up breaking a world record in the midst of it all.

What hiking was for Cheryl Strayed, skiing became for Steph: a crucible in which to crack open her life, melt it to its core, and get to the very center of herself. Steph’s powerful voice on the page is mixes humor with the lyricism of a poet, and her emotional story of courage and self-discovery will inspire readers to remove their own restraining devices, whatever they may be, and set out to find their best selves.
