Matt has been training hard almost everyday since getting clearance from his doctors in Salt Lake City back in May. Most days are spent getting his air sense back after being grounded for over 8 months.

The FullCircle Team is down in Chile skiing at Nevados de Chillan. Here is the story of our first nine days on the coast doing disaster relief work near Concepcion. For more visit http://www.thefullcircleproject.com
We are down here in Chile on a super slow internet connection and couldnt upload the original file.
One of the "Tests" we all encounter at one point in life is an instance where your world as you perceive it comes crumbling down. Whether this is literal, in case of tens of thousands of Chileans, or figurative, with the athlete facing potential career ending injury. They are both devastating, they are both very real, and although the two are hardly comparable what they share is the very human trait: perseverance. It's a complicated, yet seemingly simple ultimatum; Do you hang up your skis, or do you rebuild?
Follow The FullCircle Team as they have their eyes opened from fellow volunteer Tommy, head to the mountains, and begin their own rebuilding process.
La Ola is the final installment of The FullCircle Projects trip to Chile that follows them as they continue to ski in the around Nevados de Chillan and revisit the coast. The Team also pays a visit to Perales, the old coastal town of our guide Chico where a house he built once stood close to the beach. All that is left is the stone floor, slowly being covered by the sands of the beach pushed inland by the force of the tsunami.
The FullCircle Project heads to Peru for their second summer adventure
The FullCircle crew digs deeper into the tree planting project, learns from the people of Maras, Peru, and finds snow in the Southern Andes... Enjoy!
In this, the final episode from our experience in Peru, we plant the trees for the apple tree orchard, say goodbye to the people of Maras, and then head south to experience the Andes through another medium: our skis.
Here is a re-edit of our skiing from the last two FullCircle trips
