Motivational Speaker: Eric Alexander

No Limits to What We Can Achieve

World-Class Adventurer: Eric Alexander

Eric Alexander, a world-class skier, climber, and mountaineer is achieving his goals while playing an instrumental role in helping others to achieve their own.  Recently he defied the odds and scaled Mt. Everest with his blind- friend Erik Weihenmayer.  Currently he is planning his next adventure to Russia with Erik, to climb and ski Mt. Elbrus, at 18,500 ft one of the seven summits (the highest points on each of the seven continents).  Making this the first-ever blind ski descent of Mt Elbrus.

When not instructing disabled skiers in Vail, Colorado Eric directs Adventures Beyond Limits, an organization that educates and encourages youth with disabilities in the outdoors. 

Eric grew up in the Colorado Rockies and started climbing in his teens.  He was a member of the University of Denver ski team, which led him to pursue work as a Ski Patrolman in Vail and in the French Alps getting him a spot in a Warren Miller ski movie Snowriders II.  Erics climbing abilities were continually improving and refined over the years with expeditions throughout the Rockies, Tetons, Mexico, and the French Alps.

Climbing has not always been without its trials.  Eric reminds us of our humanity and demonstrates the courage it takes to succeed in climbing Everest after a near-fatal fall in the Himalayas when he fell 150 feet onto a 3 foot wide ledge that saved him from another 500 foot drop. The incident left him with pulmonary edema and it became clear that he would need to be airlifted to safety.  For nine months he struggled with pneumonia and was unable to train for Everest.  It is inspiring to know that Eric recovered and was one of the strongest climbers on summit day guiding Erik W every step of the way from the summit back to the safety of camp IV.

When speaking and engaging a group, it is apparent that Eric can warm his audience on many levels. His team spirit, inspiring demeanor, and balanced lifestyle is motivating and encouraging.
