Morgan Tien ~ Secondary Succession

published May 2020 - 1,453 views

Morgan Tien is our favorite tree hugger, and he spent his winter in the alpine tundra and mountain hemlock BEC subzones, or so he says. To us it seems as if he just went skiing with his friends. We hope you’ll enjoy this cut he threw together of his season in the “backcountry”.


Secondary Succession: A sequence of change initiated by a moderate disturbance that removes or kills most above ground biomass but leaves some organic matter and plant parts.

Injury, rehabilitation, and redemption are all parts of skiing. Our lives often mimic the ecosystems we live in; we must grow and adapt in the face of change.
