I have shared my preparations and experiences with you while on various expeditions and now I want to introduce another member of our Norway adventure crew. Cassie Davis is a top woman snowboarder on the college tour and a member of the U.S. Snowboard College Team for the World University Games that took place in Italy this winter. Cassie, an Omnipod insulin pump user like myself, talks about experiencing her first backcountry snowboarding expedition in Norway and how she managed her diabetes throughout the journey.
