Strength From the Top of the Mountain
By Kim Kircher
The high octane story of how Kim Kircher drew strength from the ski slopes during her husband's brush with death.
Kim Kircher's husband's illness wasn't something she could blow up as she had done countless times on the ski slopes during avalanche control. Instead, Kim faced the biggest double black diamond ski run of her life as she listened to the doctors put her husband on the transplant list while he fought bile duct cancer.
The Next 15 Minutes is Kim's high octane story of how she drew strength from her life among the ski slopes and of the daring world that showed her how to survive and fight back.
Kim Kircher has been an EMT with avalanche control at Crystal Mountain, Washington, for twenty years.
