Blind kayaker will rock your world - March 20-23 in Colorado

Come meet Erik Weihenmayer at free talks....

Next time you’re at a trailhead, the top of a ski run or a river put-in, imagine not being able to see. Now imagine stepping onto the trail, taking off downhill or wedging into a kayak and floating away. Welcome to Erik Weihenmayer’s world.

From March 20-23, Colorado Mountain College is lucky to welcome writer and blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer to four of CMC's locations. Erik’s talks are free and they’re open to the public, so be sure to bring your friends.

Erik is an internationally renowned speaker and athlete. He became the first blind person to summit Mount Everest, and has solo kayaked the Grand Canyon, among other mind-blowing achievements.

Come meet Erik and hear him talk about his bestseller “No Barriers: A Blind Man’s Journey to Kayak the Grand Canyon,” at one of the following Colorado Mountain College locations:
- Steamboat Springs (March 20)
- Breckenridge (March 21)
- Vail Valley at Edwards (March 22)
- Morgridge Commons in Glenwood Springs (March 23)

All author presentations are at 7 p.m.

“No Barriers” is available at libraries and bookstores and online at touchthetop.com and at https://marmot.overdrive.com/media/3091148 and https://marmot.overdrive.com/media/2854781.

The book is an inspiring read to say the least, though you don’t have to have read the book to come to Erik’s talks.

For more information, go to coloradomtn.edu/commonreader or call 800-621-8559 – and we’ll see you at one of Erik’s presentations!
