Kim Kircher has logged over 600 hours of explosives control, earning not only her avalanche blaster's card, but also a heli-blaster endorsement, allowing her to fly over the slopes in a helicopter and drop bombs from the open cockpit, while uttering the fabulously thrilling words "bombs away" into the mic. Her articles have appeared in Powder Online Magazine, Ski Patrol Magazine and The Ski Journal. Her memoir, THE NEXT 15 MINUTES, a high-octane story of how she used her experience as an EMT and professional ski patroller to fight back when her husband was diagnosed with bile duct cancer. Currently, Kim is at work on a narrative non-fiction book about extreme sports athletes. You can find out more about at www.kimkircher.com. ...more

This is an amazing story, and Heidi Cave is my new hero. She reveals her experience with honesty and grit. She doesn't sugar coat it nor does she dwell in the dark moments. I cried, I laughed and I wanted to seek vengeance. This book is a must read. ...more
