Extreme sports enthusiast, entrepreneur and friend of YABI, Barron Hanson is attempting a challenge few others have ever even thought about: Snowboard 1 Million Feet in 40 days! Using the premium snow conditions in the Northern Hemisphere, Barron will snowboard in the US & Japan, and will need to average 25,000 feet per day to keep on track for his record breaking attempt.
After graduating University in Australia in December 2011, Barron, 21, was looking for a unique adventure challenge before starting full time work with Liquid Snow Tours in April. He says “snowboarding is a form of meditation” and he “cherishes every minute he is in the mountains”, which is understandable given he is from the desert country of Australia!
Barron is tracking his progress through this blog 1 Million Feet including sharing all his thoughts, concerns, encounters and experiences he has along the way. Keep up with his regular blog posts for constant inspiration and a laugh at the humorous situations Barron often finds himself in!
Barron is part owner of I Like to Party, a travel company based in Wollongong.
Developed in 2008 in the party islands of Greece, “I Like to Party” has realised a universal and unifying brand and has quickly become synonymous with a good time through an expanding repertoire of events. These include various social events such as pub crawls, music festival tickets and extras, parties and beach BBQs, and also international snow tours to New Zealand and Japan.
