Parnassus Books welcomes Steph Jagger as she discusses and signs Unbound: A Story of Snow and Self Discovery.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you lived another kind of life? For Steph Jagger, after a lifetime of checking all the right boxes, she had a moment of clarity that forced her to answer that very question. In Unbound: A Story of Snow and Self-Discovery, Steph finds herself dissatisfied after having worked her way up the corporate ladder. With the passive, limited roles she saw for women as she was growing up, Steph had always emulated the men in her life—chasing success, ticking the boxes, playing by the rules. She was accomplished. She was living “The Dream.” But was it her dream?
Then, in 2010, Steph’s life changed. An avid skier, she had seen the ski lift sign thousands of times before – “Raise Restraining Device”—but one day she takes it personally: a rallying cry to shake off the life she had in order to search for the life she wanted. In a moment, the sign on the ski lift becomes her mantra, and she knows what she has to do. Steph quits her job, takes a second mortgage on her house, sells everything except her ski equipment and her laptop, and buys a plane ticket. For the next year, she will follow winter across five continents on a mission to break the world record for most vertical feet skied in a year. From the mountains of North and South America to Asia, Europe, and New Zealand, Steph stretches herself to the physical – and emotional – limit in some of the most beautiful places on Earth and winds up breaking a world record in the midst of it all.
Steph Jagger splits her time between Southern California and British Columbia where she dreams big dreams, writes her heart out, and runs an executive & life coaching practice. She holds a CEC (certified Executive Coach) degree from Royal Roads University and she believes courageous living doesn’t happen with one toe dangling in, but that we jump in, fully submerge, and sit in the juice. Think pickle, not cucumber.
