G.O. 052 - Erik Johnson: Skis, Canyons, Consequences

Erik Johnson, Esq. shreds the slopes of the legal system and the fresh powder of the backcountry mountain ranges. A lifelong freestyle skier, he has extensive experience dealing with injury whether it be concussions, broken bones, or amnesia. A rappelling accident while canyoneering cost him a leg, but not his lifestyle. He continues exploring canyons and plowing through snow brandishing his array of prosthetic legs. He and Jason met one evening to discuss a world of wounds, skis, canyons, and perseverance.

G.O. 024 - Esme Deprez on Rocks, Skis, and Journalism

Ex-Mighty Mite, Esme Deprez is a journalist for Bloomberg Businessweek concentrated on delivering unbiased government and politics oriented stories. The social constructions of mankind are not her sole interests and she often heads outside of the bounds of society to climb rad rocks or ski fresh powder. Last year she traveled to Bulgaria to research the world’s most successful climbing wall company. Esme and Jason met at the La Brea Tar Pits one evening to discuss the exploratory merits of journalism, the appeal of scaling rocks, and life after youth ski racing.

G.O. 021 - Essential Explorer Kristina Frost

Kristina Frost grew up playing on the shores of Lake Erie. An offhand comment spurred her to try backpacking. This stoked an interest in her that has not abated. Kristina became an assistant director for the University of Michigan’s Outdoor Adventures Program where she led wilderness trips and taught clinics. Now on the West Coast, she organizes women-only adventures and has begun pursuing filmmaking. She and Jason met at her office in San Francisco to discuss her outdoor history, the formation of Essential Explorer, and the challenges of windless kite-skiing trips.
