Passion to Flow: Innovation in the Mountains and in Life

Chris Davenport and Gretchen Bleiler have both achieved high levels of success in their unique and respective fields of ski mountaineering and competitive snowboarding. Although their paths of how and what they have achieved are different, there is a common bond. The passion they both have for their sport and lifestyle has led them to the highest levels of human performance in unlocking flow state. Integrating flow state into their daily lives, as well as when in the mountains, has been integral in surviving and thriving in life — and in life or death situations. Bleiler and Davenport both attribute flow state as helping them each break through to become innovators, pioneers, and inspirations for many. They share their experiences of flow state, a recipe for achieving flow, and how it can be applied to not only adventure sports, but business and life as well.
