Ryan Barrick fell in love with skiing at a young age. At 20 years young he realized a normal life wasn't for him. He now travels and skis all over North America living out of an RV and chasing his dreams. Ryan drives a 2013 Thor Ace 27.1.

Nothing like skiing all day with friends, then skiing right up to my @thorindustries RV to relax and recharge for another day of skiing! - #thorpartner #windowtotheworld #deviationworks #talltproductions #thatyoungskibum

Who’s your favorite travel buddy & why?
My good friend Owen. I always have the best time skiing with him. He’s a genuine human being and is never afraid to be his goofy self. We met in college and have known each other for many years now. He is also very talented at filming skiing, so we always get cool videos from our days skiing together.
How do you decide where to go next?
It depends on the time of year and weather. I try not to go back and forth across the country more than I need to. Mostly, I chase sunny weather and look for the terrain parks and street rails that seem like the most fun. Also, any time I hear a big storm is about to dump a bunch of snow somewhere, I like to hit the road and pay them a visit.
Which views are on your bucket list & why?
I have always wanted to travel through Europe in an RV and ski the Alps. I want to check out European ski culture, see all the old ski resorts and explore the mountains you see in ski movies.
What’s one piece of advice you have for RVers?
Life is too short. Travel as much as you can, you never know what is over the next mountain.
Who do you wish you could share this view with & why?
My parents. They have always supported my wild dreams and love hearing all my stories from the road since I don’t see them very often.
