Career cred: Gleich was the first skier to be a Blue Climate and Oceans Project ambassador.

“When I’m on a spicy, knife-edge ridge and climbing along, I say to myself, ‘Humans are very sure-footed animals.’ It’s a mantra I learned when I was a little kid on a horse backpacking trip. High up on the trail, I get scared, and the horse guide would say, ‘Don’t worry, horses are very sure-footed animals.’ It helps me stay calm and keep my footing. When I’m doing something really scary, I sing a song to myself. One is from a silly YouTube video of fuzzy animals playing in a band. It goes, ‘Fuzzy, fuzzy, cute, cute.’ Something about the baby hedgehog reminds me to stay calm, because freaking out never helps anything.”
