2017 No Barriers Summit Wrap Up

2017 marked our 9th No Barriers Summit, and each one has been better than the last. The No Barriers Summit is such a deeply lived experience that it’s difficult to sum it up. The immersive workshops, innovative technologies, and myriad of amazing people truly exemplify what we call a “No Barriers Life.” The Summit is the place where all our ideas become reality, and barriers are blasted through. Here are some highlights from this year’s Summit, held at the Resort at Squaw Creek, California.

No Barriers Grand Canyon Expedition Team Reflection-Rob Raker

Rob Raker, affectionately called “Papa Duck,” met Erik on a chance encounter in one of the world’s most remote places, Antarctica. After meeting again while filming an adventure race, Rob and Erik became good friends and have rock climbed, ice climbed, skied, ice-skated, paddle-boarded, bicycled, kayaked and traveled to over a dozen countries together. When kayaking was only a flicker of an idea, Rob taught Erik to “Eskimo roll,” and was instrumental in developing the guiding system that Erik uses. Rob served as a guide and safety boater on the No Barriers Grand Canyon Expedition.
