A mantra is a personal phrase that is intended to use your thoughts as a guide. Before Sam drops into any line, he utters his own mantra, “here goes”. What began as a superstitious habit has become the final push of confidence used to face any task he might encounter. Everything from public speaking to dropping committed pillow lines in the backcountry. Couple that with a love of music and you’ve got yourself a serious recipe for focus and execution. Here Goes. Watch ‘Here Goes’ – a high-caliber short film featuring the best shots from a winter with ‘Skier of the Year’ Sam Kuch.
